CANDLEWOOD. 
Known also as "The South Kighth." 



CANDLEWOOD 

THE STORY OF AN ANCIENT NEIGHBORHOOD. 

Why and when the name was given is largely a matter of conjecture. 
Pastor Higginson of Salem wrote to friends in England of the primitive 
way in which the earliest settlers often lighted their houses, by burning 
thin strips of the pitch pine trees. The suggestion is natural that this fine 
farming country was originally covered with a pine forest, and that it was 
of so clear grain and so rich in pitch, that it furnished the light for many 
homes. The name, Candlewood Island, was very early given to a spot in 
the upper river, in the present limit of Topsfield, but except a single allu- 
sion to Candlewood Street in a deed of 1812, no reference to the name oc- 
curs in any early documents. An ancient deed, drawn in 1652, speaks of a 
portion of this neighborhood, at least, at Mr. Joseph Marshall's, as "a place 
called Chebacco." The more prosaic name, The South Eighth, prevailed 
seventy-five years ago, but the more significant and picturesque name, 
Candlewood, has been common for two generations and may well be 
perpetuated. 

Strictly speaking, the ancient neighborhood to which the name was 
originally applied, centered about the corner, where the Essex road and 
the Candlewood road divide, but for convenience sake, its bounds will be 
stretched and it will be taken as including the whole region east of the Old 
Bay road and south of the road to Argilla. 

Jonathan Wade's Lot. 

No. 1 on Diagram. 

Beginning with the north side of the road, now called Essex Road, the 
whole tract from the line of division between Mr. Maynard Whittier and 
Mr. Samuel Gordon, to the orchard lot now owned by Mr. Wallace P. Wil- 
lett seems to have belonged originally to Mr. Jonathan Wade, a substantial 
citizen, who owned the mills at the lower falls, and the homestead which had 
belonged to the eminent Rev. Nathaniel Ward. His will (proved 1669. 
Pro. Rec. 304: 125-6), bequeathed his land and housing and the mills to 
his son, Thomas. Thomas bequeathed all his landed estate to his sons, 
Jonathan and Thomas in equal portions (proved Oct. 3, 1696. Pro. Rec. 
305:216-7.) 

Jonathan, by division with his brother, or by purchase, became the 
owner of this whole tract and enlarged it by the purchase of the Gravel Pit 
Pasture, now included in the house lots of Mr. Albert S. Brown and Mr.

Maynard Whittier, from Mr. Daniel Rogers, Dec. 20, 1727 (66: 2). He 
bequeathed to his wife, Jane, the use and improvement of one half of his 
real estate, and the use of his negro man, Dick; to his grandson, William 
Cogswell, "the pasture I purchased of Mr. Daniel Rogers with the common 
land laid out and adjoining thereto, commonly called Gravel Pit Pasture." 
If he should die, the will provided .that it should be given to his grand- 
daughters. The residue was bestowed upon his grandson, Dr. Nathaniel 
Cogswell of Rowley. The division of the ancient pasture and the eventual 
sale to Mr. Brown and Mr. Whittier, have been fully considered in the his- 
tory of "The Old Bay Road and Samuel Appleton's Farm." 1 

In 1716, March 10, Jonathan Wade sold his brother, Thomas, 14 or 15 
acres at the Windmill Hill lot (28: 265). Captain Thomas built the man- 
sion, still known as the Col. Wade house, for his dwelling in 1727, as the 
family tradition has always maintained. He bequeathed to his wife, Eliza- 
beth, one half the dwelling, his negro woman, and his silver tankard; to his 
daughter, Elizabeth Cogswell, "my negro girl, I account at £40," and to his 
son, Timothy, all his real estate. His son Thomas received £500 and his 
daughter Mary Wise was well remembered (proved Jan. 2, 1737. Pro. Rec. 
322: 97-100). Timothy Wade left a numerous family, the widow Ruth, 
sons, William, John, Nathaniel and Samuel and daughters, Elizabeth 
Heard and Mary. The widow had the use of a third of the real estate "and 
my negro man, Pomp, except she finds best to sell him" (proved April 9, 
1763 Pro. Rec. 340: 326). The widow, as executrix, sold 15 acres to Wil- 
liam, Feb. 24, 1769 (131; 150) and William conveyed 11 acres 82 rods, as 
the deed states, though there may be an error in the figures, to Ruth, on the 
next day, Feb. 25, 1769 (134: 52). Thomas Wade, the son of William sold 
a part of the estate of his father to Nathaniel, Jan. 5, 1803 (171: 158) which 
he reconveyed to Thomas, Jan. 6, 1803, 3| acres, bounded on the east by 
the land of Eunice, widow of William, set off as part of her thirds in her 
late husband's estate (171: 158). The heirs of Thomas quitclaimed to 
Isaac Wade, Feb. 8, 1831 (261: 217). Isaac sold to George Haskell, Oct. 
26, 1831 (261: 216) and Haskell to Charles Giddings, Jan. 9,1835(279: 
194). Their interest in the lot set off to the widow was sold by William 
Wade and David and Elizabeth Choate, of Essex, to Samuel Wade, April 
28, 1829 (253; 49) who sold the lot, 4} acres, to Charles Giddings, Jan. 26, 
1835 (279: 194). Giddings sold the whole lot, estimated as 8 acres, to 
Samuel Gordon, March 8, 1859 (583: 250). Mr. Gordon built the dwelling 
which he still occupies. He conveyed a small lot on the eastern side of the 
homestead to his son, Samuel C. Gordon, upon which he built his attrac- 
tive dwelling, Aug. 6, 1903 (1715: 485). 

Ruth Wade, the widow of Timothy, conveyed 6 acres to Col. Nathan- 
iel, Dec. 10, 1772 (134: 52). In the division of Col. Wade's estate, the west 
half of this lot was assigned to his son, William Foster Wade, the east, to 
his son Nathaniel, May 17, 1827 (244: 244). The heirs of Nathaniel sold 
to William F. Wade Jr., March 4, 1844 (344: 129). The heirs of William

F. sold to their brother, Asa, six eighths of the lot, June 13, 1853 (492: 80), 
the heirs of Daniel Weed sold him one eighth, April 8, 1854 (499: 295) and 
he inherited an eighth. William F. Wade sold the other half of the origi. 
nal lot to Asa, March 6, 1854 (502: 104). He conveyed to Wallace P. Wil- 
lett, Nov. 9, 1880 (1051: 214). Sarah E. Willett, wife of Wallace P., sold 
to Enoch Bailey, Sept. 12, 1892 (1355:88). Mr. Bailey built the house 
and made his home here until his death. His widow, Mary M. Bailey, sold 
the house and the 6 acres to Albin M. Spuyt, March 30, 1903 (1702: 222). 

The widow, Ruth Wade, sold another 6 acre lot to Abraham Choate, 
May 4, 1764 (120: 83) which was conveyed by Samuel and John Choate to 
Samuel Kinsman, Jan. 2, 1775 (134: 166) who then owned the farm now 
owned and occupied by Mr. Carl Caverly. He sold the whole farm to Asa 
Andrews, April 7, 1809 (186: 48). Theodore Andrews, son of Asa, sold to 
Increase H. Brown of Marblehead and his brother, Asa of Ipswich, Oct. 24, 
1835 (286: 196). In the division of the various pieces of real estate which 
they owned jointly, the "Choate lot" was assigned to Asa Brown, May 2, 
1840 (318: 193). He mortgaged and eventually gave title to Benjamin 
Hawkes (643: 19) who conveyed to Increase H. Brown, Oct. 12, 1863 (657: 
181), Brown to Theodore F. Cogswell on the same date and he, to Josiah 
Stackpole, June 23, 1882 (1075: 77) whose heirs still own. 

The Humphrey Griffin Lot. 

No. 2 on Diagram. 

Humphrey Griffin was the original owner apparently of a large tract 
owned later by Samuel Podd, then by Thomas and James Burnham. It 
seems to have joined the Jonathan Wade land. The lot adjoining the 
Choate lot on the east was included in the estate of Dr. Nathaniel Cogswell, 
which he had inherited, for the most part, as has been said, from his grand- 
father, Jonathan Wade, in 1749. Dr. Cogswell seems to have acquired 
this lot, not by inheritance, but by purchase from the Burnhams, who were 
large land owners in this vicinity, prior to the year 1769. In the deed of 
conveyance from the Cogswell heirs to Theodore Andrews, the lot is called 
"the Burnham pasture," 18 acres, Nov. 15, 1825 (243: 18). Andrews sold 
to Asa and Nathan Brown, April 1, 1833 (269: 89). They divided the lot , 
the west half falling to Nathan. He conveyed to Perley Haskell the same 
described in the quitclaim deed of Asa, Dec. 2, 1837, on May 1, 1838 (312: 
215). It passed successively to Epes Sargent, March 30, 1839 (312: 216), 
Alfred Kimball, Sept. 9, 1859 (593: 214) and Wallace P. Willett, the present 
owner, April 11, I860 (603: 260). 

Nathan Brown quitclaimed the eastern half to Asa Brown, Dec. 2, 
1837 (304: 51), Asa sold to his brother, Increase H., Oct. 28, 1S62 (643: 
243). He sold to their sister, Mrs. Rhoda B. Potter, April 2S, 1866 (701 : 
230), who conveyed to Ira B. Carlisle, April 26, 1869 (770:107). John W- 
Carlisle, brother of Ira, gained possession and his heirs convej r ed to his 
widow, Nancy B., Nov. 6, 1897 (1530: 378). She included this 9 acre pas- 
ture in the sale of the farm to Lester E. Libby, Sept. 19, 1S99 (15S7: 137). 



4 CANDLEWOOD. 

Alonzo B. Fellows purchased it of Libby, Jan. 29, 1900 (1601: 496) and 
still owns. 

The Hobson lot, so called, on which the old cellar and the lilac bushes, 
which bloomed in the door-yard, are still seen, was undoubtedly a part of 
the Thomas Burnham estate. Moses Potter sold to Samuel Kinsman, 
3J acres of upland and meadow, with a dwelling, barn and well, "reserving 
a way through the premises where the way formerly went for Thomas 
Burnham and Capt John Kinsman," April 8, 1778 (138: 167). It was 
owned and occupied before 1790, by Alexander Troop, who left a widow, 
Lucy, and son, Alexander, and minor children, Lucy, Jane, Peggy, Chris- 
tian, Hannah and William (175: 117). Alexander Troop, laborer, con- 
veyed the homestead to Daniel C. Hobson, brick maker, Sept. 7, 1801 (194: 
15). The heirs of Hobson, whoever they may be, are the legal owners of 
the small estate to-day, but the taxes have been paid and the lot has been 
used as a pasture, by the owners of the adjoining lot, Thomas Low and his 
successors, for many years. 

Old Road. 

On Diagram, 

A little to the east of the Hobson cellar, an old road, grass-grown and 
long disused, but plainly visible, leads down the slope and turns to the 
right toward the present Heart Break Road. This is the way reserved in 
Moses Potter's deed to Samuel Kinsman, ''where the way formerly went to 
Thomas Burnham and Capt. John Kinsman," April 8, 1778. This ancient 
road is of especial interest, as it opened the way to a group of houses and 
tillage and pasture lots in the earliest times. 

The first of these old settlers is Samuel Podd, to whom Humphrey 
Griffin, late of Ipswich, sold two parcels, a 6 acre lot "which is & hath been 
in the possession of sayd Samuel Pod diverse years bounded by John 
Brown northeast and the common west and a 10 acre lot with a piece of 
swamp which I the said Humphrey bought of Joseph Metcalfe" with John 
Lee, north, other land of Samuel Pod, west, Feb. 20, 1660. (Ips. Deeds 4: 
396). On March 6, 1677, Samuel Podd conveyed to James Burnham, "a 
small parcel of my land about 5 rod broad between 27& 28 rods in length," 
having Mr. Wade's land southwest, Mr. Nathaniel Rogers's northwest, 
Podd's other land northeast and southeast on the highway leading to John 
Brown's to the brook, and also a free passage to the common, allowing a 
passage \\ rods wide from sd Burnam's land to his house, etc. (Ips. Deeds 
4: 280). In the December following, articles of agreement between Samuel 
and Grace Podd and James Burnham were drawn, which specified : 

1. A lease to James Burnham, of the house and land, and 20 acres ad- 
joining and all the marsh and upland in the island formerly Edward Chap- 
man's during the life of Podd and his wife. 

2. Podd is to have the use of half the barn, etc., during his life. 

3. At the death of the Podds, the title to rest with Burnham. (Ips. 
Deeds 4:281). 



CANDLEWOOD. 5 

James Burnham was the younger son of Thomas, who bought the house 
and 12 acres of George Giddings, on the Argilla road, June 3, 1667 (1: 217) 
and his purchase from Podd was the first of a long series of conveyances, of 
which only the most prominent can be considered. The Podd land seems 
to be identical, in part, with the land now owned by Mr. Carl Caverly. It 
extended to the Gloucester road apparently and was bounded on one side 
by the Jonathan Wade land, we have already considered. It also in- 
cluded part of the land on the east side of Heart-break road. 



John Brown's Lot. 

No. 3 on Diagram. 

On January 9, 1684, James Burnham bought of John Brown, his land 
and dwelling, some 16 acres in all. A ten acre field was bounded by Podd's 
land south and southwest, land of Lieut. Thomas Burnham, brother of 
James, and other land of James north and northwest, Joseph Lee's and 
Samuel Podd's land east. A six acre lot was near by. (Ips. Deeds 2: 77.) 

In various later conveyances allusion is often made to the great rock 
in the field that was Brown's. A large granite boulder has been gradually 
blasted away for building stone, in a field owned by the heirs of Joseph 
Kinsman, on the east side of the lane. As this is the only rock that can be 
found in the vicinity, it may safely be identified with the rock mentioned 
in the deeds, and locates in a general way the house and land of John Brown. 

In the division of the estate of Thomas Burnham, father of James and 
Thomas, the homestead and adjoining lands were apportioned to Thomas, 
Nov. 14, 1691 (9: 161). To James, conveyance was made of "the interest 
he hath in his now dwelling house, which said James liveth in, with £ acre 
about it and 14 acres upland and meadow near the homestead" 1687 (9: 
168). James Burnham apparently had built a new house before this date. 

Mr. Burnham added other fields to his domain from year to year; a 
half acre of meadow from Daniel Rogers in April 10, 1691; (Ips. Deeds 5:397) 
an acre "partly common" south of Podd's home lot, August 1, 1690 (Ips. 
Deeds 5: 329), and a two acre lot having Podd's land northwest, May 14, 
1691 (Ips. Deeds 5: 380) both purchased of Samuel Rogers; 4 acres of pas- 
ture from Daniel Rogers having Captain Wade's land on the south, Feb. 
13, 1693 (10: 98); a 6 J acre pasture from Rev. John Rogers, which 
Thomas Burnham Jr., carpenter, had sold him, on the south of his home- 
stead, April 10, 1693 (10:97), and a 7 acre field from Joseph Lee, Aug. 
9, 1695 (11:39). 

On Sept. 2, 1703, he conveyed to his son, Thomas, "a certain parcel of 
meadow upland and marsh with ye buildings, with my old house, barn and 
shop, with half an acre they stand on, joining to them as it is bounded by ye 
Common southwest, and by Mr. Wade's land westerly," hisorchard bounded 
by Mr. Wade's land west, and a 6 acre pasture adjoining etc (24: IS). A 
few rods from the road, in the orchard now owned by Mr. Willett, a level 
spot amid the rolling hillocks, would have afforded ample room for an an- 



6 CANDLEWOOD. 

cient dwelling, and I have often thought, that the old house alluded to in 
this deed, may have stood there. 

James Burnham made a later conveyance to his son Thomas of about 
40 acres and housing on Jan. 25, 1719 (37: 161). Thomas sold the same, 
enlarged to 61 acres to Samuel Bragg, Dec. 18, 1773 (135: 53). Bragg 
sold the house and 26 acres to Samuel Kinsman, May 7, 1784 (186: 47). 
Kinsman sold the house and 18 acres to Asa Andrews, "with the road run- 
ning through the same," "also the right to pass and repass on that piece 
between the bridge and Josiah Burnham's barn, now fenced out as a way, 
also a piece of land adjoining the above, 1^ rods wide 28 rods long, bounded 
on land we sold Asa about a year since, .... reserving a way one rod wide 
subject to gates and bars for those who have heretofore been accustomed 
to pass," April 7, 1809 (186: 48). This deed has great interest from its in- 
clusion of the small parcel which Samuel Podd conveyed to James Burn- 
ham in 1677, and the allusion to the fact that the present Heart-break road 
had "been fenced out as a way." 

Mr. Andrews enlarged the farm by later purchases so that it contained 
47 acres when his son and heir, Theodore Andrews, conveyed it to Increase 
and Asa Brown, Oct. 24, 1835 (286: 196). By the deed of division the 
farm with the exception of the Choate lot, as was mentioned, fell to Increase 
H. Brown. His executor sold to J. Farley Kinsman, June 2, 1873(882:22), 
who conveyed it to Dr. Sidney A. Lord, measuring 41 acres, Oct. 25, 1904 
(1760: 1). He sold to Mr. Carl Caverly, the present owner. 

The exact age of the house is uncertain. Its sharp roof and general 
architecture point to the seventeenth century. It was built probably by 
James Burnham, and may be the dwelling which he occupied in 1687, or 
the later house in which he dwelt in 1703. 

On the same day that he conveyed the 40 acres and dwelling to his son, 
Thomas, James Burnham made similar conveyance of "the house I now live 
in," barn etc., the malt house and about 40 acres to his son James (37: 178). 
His will was presented for probate, June 27, 1729 (Pro. Rec. 319: 223). It 
recites that his real estate had been given to his sons already. His wife, 
Mary, received a privilege in the west end of the house with all personal 
effects, servants, money, etc. The inventory includes two negro servants, 
valued at £100 and a calash, £7-10. 

Rev. Nathaniel Rogers's Lot. 

No. 4 on Diagram. 

James Burnham Jr., son of James, by purchase acquired the Rogers 
estate. In the indenture between John Rogers, the President of Harvard 
College, and his brother Samuel, by which the estate of their father, Rev. 
Nathaniel Rogers was divided between them, Samuel received a house and 
8 acres, bounded one side by Goodman Loe and by Edward Bragg at one 
end, March 4, 1684 (Ips. Deeds 5: 146). This included the Willard B. 
Kinsman property now occupied by Miss Patch and part of the Wallace farm. 

Samuel Rogers also received from his father's estate, 6 acres of upland 



CANDLEWOOD. 7 

adjoining Thomas Loe and Samuel Pod, 40 acres adjoining Mr. Wade, Mr. 
Saltonstall and Joseph Lee (now owned by Mr. John Galbraith) and the 
40 acre Ox Pasture, near the Haffield Bridge. 

The inventory of Mr. John Rogers, son of Samuel, taken Nov 21, 1694 
(Pro. Rec. 303: 260) included: 

"y* mansion house and common right, barne and other outhouses, 
orchard and homestead about 6 acres and 5 acres of upland near Podds," 
etc. and one negro servant, valued at £30. 

Martha Rogers, widow of John, married Jacob Boarman. Her ac- 
count of the estate included an allowance for bringing up the three children 
from their father's death to the time of her marriage, about six years, 
"besides ^ income of y e sd estate £50-0-0" (Pro. Rec. 309: 266). A double 
share was given to John, the oldest child, and shares to Sarah and Martha. 
The widow also received a part of the estate (311: 204). Jacob Boarman 
and Martha, in consideration of a deed of quitclaim by James Burnham Jr. 
and wife,Sarah, and Matthew Perkins Jr. and wife Martha, conveyed to James 
and Sarah Burnham and Matthew and Martha Perkins, their interest in 
the house and land of "our father, Mr. Samuel Rogers," "the west end of 
the dwelling they now dwell in," Dec. 21, 1714 (29: 192). Jacob Boar- 
man made a later conveyance to James Burnham Jr. of five sixths of the 
dwelling he then occupied, March 4, 1719 (38: 110). 

James Burnham, the son of James, survived his father but a few years. 
The inventory of his estate was filed, May 5, 1737 (Pro. Rec. 322 : 379). It 
revealed a goodly degree of prosperity and even luxury. His apparel was 
valued at £60-8-0.

about 26 acres on y* westerly side of y* road leading to Chebacco £282-0-0" 
(now owned by Geo A. Whipple) 

Real and personal estate £5083-18-0 

The estate was divided: 
To the widow Hannah, was assigned one third of the real estate, 

"five sixths of the house of sd deceased, that did once belong to Mr. 
John Rogers and about f acre about it, and the 26 acres on Chebacco 

road." 
To his daughter, Abigail, the 1st division, 

part of the house that was formerly Mr. James Burnham's, "over ye 
stone kitchen" and various fields. 
To his eldest daughter, Sarah, the 2nd division, 

rooms in the house of deceased "and y* part of y** old house that wai 
Pods, and y* old house where y* widow Comer dwelt" with various lots. 
To his daughter, Mary, m. Staniford, the 3d division, 

half the malt kiln and part of the homestead. 
To his daughter Hannah, m. Kinsman, the 4th division, 

rooms in the dwelling of James, and about If acres on the southerly 
side of road to Chebacco (now included in the lot occupied by T. M. Nor- 
man, owned by William J. Cameron). 

It appears from this, that Mr. Burnham occupied the Rogers house 
and that his father's house (about where the Wallace dwelling stands, I in- 
cline to believe), the ancient Podd dwelling and another old house, perhaps 
the John Brown house occupied by the widow Comer, were still standing 
on the farm. 

The legatees conveyed their interest to Capt. John Kinsman; Thos. 
Staniford and his wife, Mary, daughter of Mr. Burnham on Jan. 3, 1740 
(81: 197) and Mar. 16, 1758 (112: 263); Martha Dodge, widow of Barnabas, 
Aug. 16, 1740 (80: 120); Abigail, another daughter, on April 30, 1755 
(112: 264) and March 25, 1758 (115: 159); and Rev. Nathaniel Rogers 1 on 
May 24, 1760 (115: 160) and March 16, 1761 (115: 158). 

Thomas Low's Lot. 

No. 5 on Diagram. 

Mention has been made of Thomas Loe or Low as abutting on the 
Rogers homestead on the south and facing the ancient Lane on the west. 
John Low, son of Thomas, was in possession in 1690 and he conveyed the 
homestead and 8 acres to his brother, Thorndike, May 5, 1708 (36: 218). 
John was then a resident of Portsmouth, N. H. Under the will of 
Thorndike (proved Oct. 17, 1750. Pro. Rec. 336: 425) the real estate 
passed to his son, Nathaniel, and his daughter, Elizabeth, who had

rah, the widow of Isaac Randall, Mary deceased, the wife of Nathaniel 
Foster Jr., Martha, unmarried, Dorothy, wife of Thos. Yorke and 
wife of Jacob Carter. The inventory gives a house, barn and 6 acrea 
(Pro. Rec. 338: 496). 

Daniel Low, joyner, sold to Capt. John Kinsman, two-thirds of the 
Nathaniel Low homestead and 10 acres, April 22, 1761 (131:75) and 
Sarah Foster, widow, Dr. Nathaniel Low and others, conveyed to him 
half a dwelling and 6 acres, March 25, 1779 (138: 166). By this purchase 
Captain John Kinsman came to own the original James Burnham farm, 
the ancient Thomas Low estate and the Samuel Rogers estate. He con- 
veyed to his son, James, three fourths of a dwelling and land, evidently the 
Rogers dwelling, Oct. 18, 1760 (110: 133) and two parcels of upland, 
March 21, 1761 (110: 263). 

After the death of James Kinsman, his widow, Mary, sold 18£ acres 
with part of a barn to Captain John, Feb. 21, 1764 (113: 182). The Cap- 
tain died in 1785. His will (proved March 7, 1785. Pro. Rec. 351: 356) 
devised to his wife Elizabeth, the improvement of a third of a dwelling and 
garden and to his son, Samuel, "the house I now live in" with barn and out- 
buildings . . . with a portion to his grand-daughter, Mary Remick. It is 
more than probable that his dwelling was the spacious mansion which still 
stands, lately owned by Mr. Aretas D. Wallace. 

Samuel Kinsman sold 79 acres and buildings to Isaac Burnham, "re- 
serving liberty to the heirs of Dr. Joshua Burnham to pass and repass as 
usual, likewise a way for myself from Mr. Bragg's farm with my cattle and 
team to the country road which leads to Chebacco," Feb. 15, 1790 (152: 
96) Isaac Burnham conveyed to Josiah, March, 18 1795 (158: 290), Josiah 
to his brother, Aaron, 88 acres, Jan. 9, 1812 (196: 109), Aaron Burnham 
to John Heard, with cider mill, press, etc., Feb. 2, 1814 (201: 282). 
Mr. Heard also bought 6 acres of Asa Andrews, July 7, 1819 (221: 213) 
which Mary Remick and James of Barrington, N. H., had sold to Andrews, 
"being part of the estate of James Kinsman," July 9, 1819 (221: 212). Mr. 
Heard sold half an acre out of this 6 acre lot to Levi Brown, Sept. 4, 1S26 
(244: 38) and the 88 acre farm to his son, George W. Heard, April 2, 1S30 
(282: 162). He conveyed to Thomas Low, 83 acres, April 1, 1835 (315: 
270) and his daughter, Abby S. Stone, widow of Augustine, to Aretas D. 
Wallace, March 27, 1901 (1636: 517). Augustine and Abby Stone had 
sold a two acre lot to Robert W.Bolles, Feb. 11, 1888(1223: 462) on which 
he built, at once, his dwelling and other buildings. 

Mr. George W. Heard sold an acre and a half to Levi Brown, who had 
bought a half acre from his father, March 21, 1832. He built a dwelling 
and other buildings. He quitclaimed to his brother, Francis, who sold to 
Henry S. Holmes, 2 acres and buildings, March 9, 1842 (330: IS), Holmes 
to Willard B. Kinsman, April 1, 1851 (456: 112), who enlarged the house, 
to its present form. 

The ancient dwelling, now occupied by Mr. Caverly, is the one surviv- 
ing link that binds this compact group of eighteenth and seventeenth 
century dwellings with the present. The old brick yard on the Wallace 



10 CANDLEWOOD. 

estate has been so long disused that its existence is only indicated by the 
levelling of the clay field. Mr. Daniel C. Hobson, the brick-maker, who 
bought the Troop estate in 1801, probably worked at his trade on this spot. 

Edward Bragg's Farm. 

No. 6 on Diagram. 

The next farm, now owned by Alonzo B. Fellows, was originaWy part of 
the great farm which was granted to John Winthrop Jr, leader of the little 
company which settled here in March, 1633. Dep.-Gov. Samuel Symonds 
bought it in 1637-8 (Ips. Deeds, 1: 45) and probably gave it the name, 
Argilla farm, which still holds. Mr. Symonds sold to his former servant 
Edward Bragg, "9 acres, as it is now fenced in with a yard where there is a 
barn and other buildings," 28-11-1658 (Ips. Deeds 4: 39) and another 
9 acre lot and 4| acres, April 21, 1676 (Ips. Deeds 4: 40). The adminis- 
trators of the Dep.-Governor's estate sold to Bragg, 35 acres adjoining 
Bragg's house and barn, near the northwest corner, Feb. 8, 1679 (Ips. 
Deeds 4: 306). John Rogers sold to Edward Bragg and Timothy, his son, 
2 acres of upland and a half acre pasture, Feb. 26, 1693 (43: 97). In his 
old age, Mr. Bragg conveyed to his son, Timothy, in a carefully drawn in- 
strument, his houses and lands, 112 acres in all, the dwelling of Edward 
and the house Timothy had built for himself, the land he had bought of 
Mr. Symonds and the 40 acres of marsh and upland he had purchased 
from Mr. Rogers, "with all that, being about 20 acres, which Edward was 
possest of before he purchased the above mentioned." He bound Timothy 
to keep his house in repair during his own and his wife's life, care for 
a garden spot fenced before the door and plough an acre for his use, where 
he chose. Timothy was bound to provide firewood at the door, also a horse, 
30 sheep, 60 bushels Indian corn, 20 bushels malt, 15 bushels rye and 
wheat called Messling, 4 bushels wheat, 6 barrels good cider, 10 bushels 
winter apples and summer apples as needful. 

"He shall improve fifty rods of land yearly for flax which Timothy 
is to plough yearly, also if s d Edward's now wife see good to live half 
a year at sd. now dwelling house after y 43 decease of sd Edward sd 
Timothy shall carry her to meeting on Sabath and Lecture days if 
she desire it," June 26, 1699 (14: 12). 

His will was proved Aug. 23, 1708 (Pro. Rec. 310: 78-80). It de- 
vised "to the church of Christ in Ipswich of which I am a member £3 in 
money to be layd out by my overseers in a piece of silver plate for y e use 
of said church forever." 

A codicil states that Timothy, the son, to whom he had given his 
whole estate, had died, and it was then given to the sons of Timothy, 
John, Timothy and Abiell. Division was made, to John, the east third 
to Timothy, the middle including the lower house, (the house of Edward 
his grandfather), to Abiel, the west third, including the house his father 
lived in, July 22, 1709 (Pro. Rec. 310: 162). John Bragg sold to James 
and Thomas Burnham, the sons of James, "my share of land given unto 



CANDLEWOOD. |] 

me by my grandfather, Edward Bragg, tillage and pasturing land with 
part of an orchard," Dec. 16, 1709 (22: 140). 

John Bragg, of Scarboro, made conveyance to his brother, Timothy, of 
his interest in his father's and grandfather's estate, May 2, 1724 (50: 24). 
Ebenezer Bragg of Marlboro, and Nathaniel Bragg of Wenham quitclaimed 
to Timothy, Jan. 8, 1723-4 (50: 26) and Edward Bragg of Andover, May 22 
1724 (50: 27). There is also record of a conveyance by Samuel Baker Jr. 
to Timothy Bragg Jr. of a house and 33 acres, Nov. 30, 1752 (108: 30), 
but it is likely that this was Timothy Bragg's dwelling which may have 
been mortgaged to Baker. This also came into the possession of Thomas 
Burnham Jr. who thus owned the whole Bragg farm. He sold 79} acres 
with dwelling to Francis Brown, Feb. 16, 1781 (138: 170). It was in- 
herited by John Burnham Brown, son of Francis, who built the present 
dwelling, near the highway. The cellar of the ancient house, built by 
Bragg, is by the side of a lane, some 800 feet north of the present location. 

Thomas Burnham sold to his son, James, a cooper by trade, about 30 
acres and a house, the Timothy Bragg Jr. dwelling undoubtedly, and 26 
acres on the other side of the road, with 11 acres of salt marsh called Sal- 
tonstall's, Nov. 10, 1783 (142: 19). * James Burnham conveyed this to 
John Willet, his father-in-law, Jan. 19, 1793 (155: 167). John Willet'a 
will (proved Feb. 7, 1804. Pro. Rec. 371: 325) gave to his daughter, Bet- 
sey Burnham, the improvement of the property of her late husband 
James Burnham; to Betsey and Joshua Burnham, children of said Betsey, 
all lands conveyed to him by James Burnham; to his son, Moses, his home- 
stead, land and buildings, about 15 acres. Betsey Burnham married Jabez 
Richards and conveyed to him the title in the house and 1^ acres and 3£ 
acres on the other side the road, Oct. 17, 1809 (189: 14). Richards mort- 
gaged to Moses Willett in 1817 (213: 129). David Dodge, administrator 
or Moses Willett, quitclaimed to Oliver Appleton Jr., Dec. 24, 1823 (234: 
130). Appleton sold to Nathan Brown, Jan. 6, 1824 (234: 130). He 
moved the house to the lot he owned on County Road, near the Common, 
where it still stands (the dwelling of Mr. Everett K. Brown). Mr. Brown 
sold the lot formerly occupied by the house to Nehemiah Brown, Jan. 13, 
1826 (272: 111), and he to John B. Brown, Aug. 23, 1833 (609: 236). 

Joshua Burnham sold his half interest in 28^ acres to John Burnham 
Brown and his sister Mary, Dec. 6, 1823 (251: 127). Mr. Brown, now the 
owner of the whole Bragg farm, gave or sold 15 acres to his son, John A. 
Brown and sold the remaining 100 acres and buildings to Ira B. Carlisle 
and Joseph Huckins, Aug. 2, 1860 (610: 234). John A. Brown sold 15 
acres to the same on the same date (610: 233). By mutual quitclaim, 
they divided the farm, Mr. Huckins taking the eastern, Mr. Carlisle, the 
western half, Oct. 16, 1861 (634: 51). Ira B. Carlisle conveyed his title to 
his brother, John C. Carlisle, May 9, 1870 (798: 136), the heirs of John to 
the widow, Nancy B., Nov. 6, 1897 (1530: 378), she to Lester E. Libby, 
Sept. 19, 1899 (1587: 137) who sold to Alonzo B. Fellows, Jan. 29. 1900 
(1601: 496). Mr. Huckins bought 2 acres adjoining of Mrs. Rhoda B. Pot-

ter, April 28, 1869 (770: 106). His heirs sold to William G. Horton 53 
acres with the house, barn etc., which Mr. Huckins built when he pur- 
chased the farm, Feb. 26, 1889 (1243: 408). 

Elisha and Benjamin Brown. 

No. 7 on Diagram. 

A second section of the Argilla farm included a dwelling remembered 
by the older folk, between Mr. Horton's and Mr. Marshall's, near the bars. 
Rev. Samuel Philips, John Philips of Boston and others sold to Elisha 
Brown, weaver, and Benjamin Brown, blacksmith, in equal halves, \ of the 
Argilla farm, 120 acres, "formerly set off to Mrs. Dorothy Emerson (since 
called Henchman) as her part of the Argilla farm," June 13, 1743 (84: 203). 
They built a dwelling, Elisha owning the west half, Benjamin the east. 
John Choate sold them 6£ acres, reserving a drift way, Dec. 21, 1752 (102: 
140). Elisha Brown and Lydia sold the half house in which they lived 
and about 14 acres to Francis Brown, March 16, 1789 (228: 128) who had 
bought the Thomas Burnham farm, as has been said, in 1781. This half 
house with a small lot of land was set off to the widow, Judith. John 
Burnham Brown owned |f, Mary Brown and Charles Brown owned 
\\ (185: 248). After the death of their mother, John B. Brown, Mary 
Brown and widow Judith Manning sold the half house to John Sweet, 
April 18, 1836 (291: 139), he to Asa Brown, Feb. 13, 1840 (317: 184). By 
various conveyances Charles and Mary quitclaimed their interest in the 
land to John B. Brown (540: 198, 199, 200). 

Benjamin Brown, the blacksmith, owner of the east side of the dwell- 
ing, had sons, Nathaniel and Benjamin, Abner and David. In his will, he 
gave the front chamber, part of the orchard, etc. to his son David, and to 
Abner, rooms in the house and 13 acres of land (proved June 13, 1809. 
Pro. Rec. 378:128). Nathaniel and Benjamin had lands elsewhere as 
will be noted. Charles Kimball, the administrator of David, sold his in- 
terest to John A. Brown, Jan. 27, 1847 (610: 96), who sold the same to 
Ira B. Carlisle and Joseph Huckins, July 21, 1860 (610: 234). Abner 
Brown conveyed 14 acres to Ammi and William Brown, April 20, 1818 
(216: 116). Hannah, the widow of Ammi, and others sold to Nathaniel 
Kinsman, owner of the adjoining property, Nov. 26, 1835 (287: 51). Abner 
bequeathed his interest in the house and land about it to his grandson, 
William Cook, son of John M. Cook of Salem and his daughter, Sarah, 
(proved Feb. 2, 1819. Pro. Rec. 394: 242). Elisha Brown sold an acre 
of tillage and orchard ground, half a barn, quarter of a dwelling and un- 
divided quarter of the yard in front, "conveyed to me by deed June 16, 
1828, signed by Geo. Smith, guardian of William Cook, a minor," to Asa 
Brown, April 2, 1835 (282: 89). His purchase of the other half the house 
in 1840 has been noted. The house, untenanted and falling into decay, 
was burned, by the touch of an incendiary it was thought. The 2 acre 
lot was sold to Mrs. Rhoda B. Potter, Feb. 11, 1867 (743: 198) and by her 
to Joseph Huckins, April 28, 1869 (770: 106). Joseph Marshall relin-

quished the ancient drift- way to Huckins, April 26, 1869 (770: 106). The 
lot was included in the sale by the Huckins heirs to William G. Horton. 

John Choate Farm. 

No. 8 on Diagram. 

The Joseph Marshall farm was also a part of the Argilla farm. Mat- 
thew Whipple conveyed to John Philips of Boston, John Choate Esq, and 
Samuel Baker "my title to one half of the westerly half of Argilla Farm, 
about 130 acres, salt marsh and upland, being the two quarters of sd farm 
which the sd John Philips and others in the right of their mother, Mrs. 
Mary Philips and Mr. John Emerson in his own right, recovered in law 
some years past as it descended to them in right of Mrs. Dorothy Hench- 
man late of Boston," £)ec. 8, 1749 (95: 50). 

John Choate was the sole owner in 1752 when he sold 6£ acres to 
Elisha and Benjamin Brown. William and John Choate sold the lot, 
measuring 28 acres, to Abraham Choate, Feb. 4, 1772 (130: 44) and he, 
to Elisha Brown, Feb. 6, 1772 (130: 44). Elisha built a house, and on 
March 16, 1789, the same day on which he sold his half-dwelling in which 
he lived, to Francis Brown, as we have noted, he sold the newer house, 
the east half, and 28 acres to Nehemiah Brown (161: 13) the west half and 
half an acre to Joseph Brown (157: 140). Joseph lived in the house at the 
time, perhaps, as he mentions his residence in his deed of sale to Nehe- 
miah, March 29, 1798 (193: 266). 

Ammi Brown of Salem sold his interest to his brother, Nehemiah, 
"I of all the real estate of our honored father, Nehemiah, the home- 
stead and other lots, $ conveyed to me by Michael Brown, Nov. 28, 1820, 
(226: 249) £ by my sister, Elizabeth Brown (203: 139), £ I hold as heir of 
my father subject to the dower of our mother, Mary Brown," July 17, 
1821 (248: 157). 

William Brown Jr. of Salem conveyed his ninth interest to Nehemiah, 
Sept. 7, 1826 (248: 157). Nehemiah Brown sold the house and 29 acres 
to Nathaniel Kinsman, April 10, 1828 (248: 175) and Hannah, the widow 
of Ammi Brown and other heirs sold him the 14 acre lot adjoining, already 
described, Nov. 26, 1835 (287:51). Joanna Kinsman, daughter of Nathan- 
iel, sold her half interest to Joseph Marshall and Abby, sister of Joanna, 
April 5, 1866 (874: 184). Mr. Marshall bought a half acre piece of Joseph 
Huckins, April 6, 1869 (874: 185). The old house, which had weathered 
a century, was removed by Mr. Marshall to a new site, east of its original 
location, and the large new buildings were erected on the old spot. 

Dea. Matthew Whipple Lot. 

No. 9 on Diagram. 

Elisha and Benjamin Brown, we have noted, bought a lot in 1743 from 
the Henchman heirs on which they built their house. On March 4,1763, 
they bought of Matthew Whipple, 30 r.crcc of upland, in equal shares, 



14 CANDLEWOOD. 

adjoining the lot we have just traced (112: 121). Benjamin had the west 
half and he gave this to his son, David (June 13, 1809. Pro. Rec. 378 
128). David Brown utilized his small property by a public bequest. 
After bestowing the rooms in the dwelling which were bequeathed him by 
his father, he proceeds, 

"The rest and residue of all my estate ... I give, devise and bequeath 
for the purpose of supporting a school for the small children in the 
school district, where I now live, in the summer season and I do order 
and direct that the improvement of the aforesaid property be expend- 
ed for the above purpose, and that the property aforesaid be under 
the sole care and direction of my executor, hereafter named and the 
two oldest selectmen of the town of Ipswich . . . and if the im- 
provement of the above interest shall be more than sufficient for a 
common school, what remains to go toward supporting a school in the 
winter season and so to continue as above, annually and forever 
(proved June 4, 1822. Pro. Rec. 399: 502). 
A small lot, opposite the Geo. A. Whipple house, on the Candlewood 
road, and this 15 acre lot were included in the bequest. At a Probate Court, 
April 5, 1870, the trustees were authorized to sell the real estate (Pro. 
Rec. 426: 447). Mr. Joseph Marshall bought the larger lot, adjoining 
his own land, measuring 16 acres 24 rods, May 25, 1870 (874: 185) and 
removed the old house to a place on this lot. The interest from the fund 
thus provided is now used in providing transportation for the children of 
the neighborhood to the schools in the center of the Town. 

The other half of the Deacon's Pasture as it is still called, as Matthew 
Whipple was a Deacon in the Hamilton church, was assigned to Elisha 
Brown. He sold this lot to his sons, on the same March 16, 1789, when he 
divided all his belongings, a half to Joseph (157: 140), a quarter to Nehe- 
miah (161: 13), and a quarter to Francis (228: 128). Joseph sold to his 
son, Joseph Jr. the 8 acres he had bought of his father and about 3 acres, 
he had bought of the heirs of his brother Francis, Aug. 1, 1806 (191: 259). 
He bought the interest of Nehemiah, April 9, 1828 (249: 211). His sons, 
Gardiner A. and Joseph P. inherited and the heirs of Joseph P. quitclaimed 
to Gardiner, Oct. 12, 1858 (578: 99), whose heirs still own. 

Rev. Nathaniel Rogers's Lot. 

No. 10 on Diagram. 

The small tract, on which the house of Mr. Charles G. Brown stands, 
was originally owned by Rev. Nathaniel Rogers, then by his son Samuel, 
apparently, by James Burnham, and by Capt. John Kinsman. He sold 
a 3£ acre pasture lot to his son, John Jr., July 24, 1759 (109: 56). John Jr. 
built a house and sold or mortgaged house and lot to his brother, Samuel, 
March 1, 1783 (140: 129). Samuel reconveyed to John Jr. in 1784 (142: 
172) and John Jr. then sold to Moses Kinsman, May 7, 1784 (142: 173). 
Moses Kinsman was succeeded by his son Moses, who built the present 
dwelling. His widow, Jane Kinsman, sold to Alfred Smith, April 27, 



CANDLEWOOD. 15 

1865 (683: 194), he to William S. Todd of Gloucester, Nov. 10, 1868 (759: 
259), who conveyed to Gardiner A. Brown, April 5, 1877 (974: 173). The 
farm included beside the house lot, land on the east side of the North Gate 
Road, 6£ acres at Peto Point, the Woodbury marsh, 12 acres, etc. 

Philemon Dane's Lot. 

No. 11 on Diagram. 

Returning now to Parting Paths and the Inner Common of the South 
Eighth 1 , the Crumpton lot on the corner has been traced already. 2 Phile- 
mon Dane by virtue of one old right, owned the lot adjoining Crumpton's 
in 1733, which he sold to Joseph Appleton, May 1, 1742 (104: 77) who 
owned the lot adjoining, fronting on the Bay Road. Joseph Appleton, 
son of the above, sold his holdings to Alexander Troop, trader, whose dwell- 
ing was on the opposite side of the road, as has been already observed, 3 
Sept. 27, 1787 (148: 114). Troop sold to the Farley brothers, John and 
Thomas, the tanners, Sept. 7, 1801 (175: 117) and the Farleys to Amos 
Jones, Feb. 17, 1820 (223: 160) Daniel Ross, the Revolutionary soldier, 
succeeded and conveyed to Thomas Wade, May 22, 1824. The executor 
of Mr. Wade sold to Symmes and Richard Potter, Sept. 18, 1838 (303: 91). 

Richard Potter sold his interest in the 8 acre lot, to Ebenezer Fall, 
April 20, 1844 (344: 130) and Fall conveyed to Capt. Symmes Potter, 
Sept. 10, 1845 (358: 266). He bequeathed to his sister, Mrs. Julia P. 
Willett, 1859 (Pro. Rec. 420: 46) and her son, Wallace P. Willett, inherited 
and still owns. 

Ward's Meadow. 

No. 12 on Diagram. 

The next lot in the ancient Inner Common of the South Eighth was 
the largest of all, containing about 50 acres. It was known as Ward's 
meadow, and is so called in the inventory of Jonathan Wade in 1749 (Pro. 
Rec. 330; 435). Jonathan Wade, the first of the name, bought the house- 
lot of Rev. Nathaniel Ward and the commonage went with the homestead. 
It may have been granted to Mr. Ward though no record remains and 
continued in the Wade family to the date mentioned above. The 
question of these early grants in the Inner Common will be considered a 
little later in connection with John Tuttle's grant. 

Jonathan Wade bequeathed the residue of his estate, which included 
this spacious meadow, to his grandson, Dr. Nathaniel Cogswell (proved 
Jan. 17, 1749. Pro. Rec. 329: 133). Northend Cogswell and other heirs 
sold it to James Brown "commonly called Ward's Meadow Pasture," Nov. 
15, 1825 (240: 167). His heirs sold to George W. Brown, May 1, 1S52 

The Inner Common of the South Eighth has been fully described in The History 
of the Old Bay Road, No. XV of the Publications. It was a great pasture, held in 
common until about 1726, when it was divided, usually into small lots of about S acres-

(463: 118). He conveyed to Asa Wade, 38^ acres and a barn, April 21«, 
1862 (637: 1), and he sold in turn to Mary Quincy Kinsman, wife of Willard 
F. Kinsman, who still owns, March 30, 1881 (1055: 292). 

James Burnham's Lot. 

No. 13 on Diagram. 

The lot on the east side of Ward's meadow seems to be the one de- 
scribed in the deed of James Burnham to Jonathan Wade, 6| acres, Feb. 
28, 1728-9 (77: 172) Jonathan Wade sold to Joseph Manning, 5 acres, 
124 poles, part of the land I purchased of Mr. James Burnham and Mr. 
Timothy Wade in the South eighth, July 2, 1741 (88: 131). Jt was 
bounded south by the Hamlet road, so called i. e., Lakeman's Lane, and 
west "by the land of Jonathan Wade, to ye ditch in Ward's meadow so 
called and by the south side of the ditch down to Chebacco road." Its 
later history is given in connection with Joseph Abbe's lot. 

Samuel Ayers's Lot. 

No. 14 on Diagram. 

The next lot was sold by Samuel Aiers and others to Joseph Fellows', 
about 9 acres "laid out to me in part with the heirs of Nathaniel Fuller," 
March 8, 1738 (88: 142). Nathaniel Fuller sold Joseph Manning f of an 
old right descending to Nathaniel, from his father, Nathaniel, being origin- 
ally Haskell's right, lying in common with an old right, laid out to Samuel 
Ayers, Jan. 15, 1739 (80: 82). Dr. Manning conveyed to Joseph Fellows, 
whose land abutted on the south, in consideration of 1 acre 34 rods and £5, 
1 acre 94 rods of upland I bought of Nathaniel Fuller, joining near to 
Proctor's brook, so called, June 27, 1740 (88: 142). Joseph Fellows con- 
veyed to Joseph Manning his interest in the north end of the Ayers lot, 
June 27, 1740 (88: 132), and it was merged in Dr. Manning's large tract. 

Joseph Abbe's Lot. 

No. 15 on Diagram. 

Dr. Joseph Manning purchased a third lot, one of the old lots, of 
Joseph Abbe, 10 acres which was bounded south west "by the way laid 
out from the saw mill to Brag's hill, through said Inner Common," March 
26, 1743 (87: 254). 

Lakeman's Lane is the way referred to, which extended originally to 
the saw mill. 1 The Bragg house cellar is still visible in the rear of Alonzo 
B. Fellow's residence. The old road may have traversed the low hill on 
which the old house stood to avoid the swamp, over which a causeway 
may have been built later. 

Dr. John Manning inherited these three lots from his father, Dr. 
Joseph, and sold the 24 acres, comprised in them to Abraham Brown, May

12, 1806(179: 50), who conveyed to Asa and John Dudley Andrews, March 
31, 1815(208: 16), and they to Col. Nathaniel Wade, April 17, 1817 (215: 
10). His heirs divided the estate, May 17, 1827 (Pro. Rec. 244: 243). 
William Foster Wade received the west half of this spacious pasture and 
Nathaniel Wade, the east. Joseph H. Wade and other heirs of William F. 
sold to Ira Worcester, March 13, 1844 (377: 256). His widow, Ruth G. 
sold to Willard B. Kinsman, the same which her husband had bought ex- 
cept a small corner of meadow sold to Asa Wade, July 12, 1876 (960: 110). 
Willard B. sold this to Mary Q. Kinsman, his daughter-in-law, May 10, 
1883(1055: 83), Willard F. and Mary Q. conveying to Willard B. the Birch 
pasture on Lakeman's lane. Nathaniel Wade's portion was sold by his 
executor, his son Francis H. Wade, to Willard B. Kinsman, April 17, 1845 
(357: 68). He sold to Mary A. Quincy, who became the wife of Willard 
B. Kinsman Jr., 24 acres, March 29, 1876 (951: 72). This included the 
12 acre lot, bought of the executor of Nathaniel Wade in 1845, an 8 acre lot, 
purchased of Elisha Brown in 1848 and 3J acresbought of Jacob B.Tenney 
Jr. in 1869. * On the eastern side of this lot the attractive farm buildings 
were built. Mention has already been made of the purchase by Mrs. Kins- 
man of the 12 acre lot, originally owned by Col. Nathaniel Wade 
in 1883 and the Ward's meadow pasture in 1881. These lots compose the 
present spacious farm. 

Robert Calef s Lot. 

No. 16 on Diagram. 

Robert Calef owned an 8 acre lot, which was sold by his son, John, to 
John Kinsman, May 26, 1748 (93: 147) and by Kinsman to Benjamin 
Brown 3d and Nathaniel Brown, March 31, 1773 (132 : 152). Benjamin 
Brown, Parker Brown and other heirs sold their interest to Sarah, their 
sister, July 16, 1817 (281: 235), Sarah to Elisha Brown, July 7, 1835 (281 : 
236) and Elisha to Willard B. Kinsman, July 3, 1848 (411: 66). 

Beyond this point the original ownerships and earlier transfers are 
very difficult to determine and the titles to some are very complicated. 
An attempt will be made, however, to trace the pedigrees. 

Samuel Howard's Lot. 

No. 17 on Diagram. 

John Brown 3d was the owner of the next lot. Samuel Howard sold 
to John Brown 3d, carpenter, and Joseph Brown Jr., cordwainer, his right 
in a ten acre lot, set out to Capt. Ringe, Lt. Simon Wood and others, 9 
acres on the south side of the Hamlet road and 1 acre on the north side, 
Nov. 21, 1737(86:314). 

Philemon Dane and Simon Wood sold to John Brown 3d their propor- 
tionable part of two old rights in the South Pasture, 18 acres, May 26, 
1742 (88: 59). John Brown Jr. sold a small lot, an acre and a half or two 
i These belonged to the adjoining original lots and will be considered under 
that head.

acres, which he had bought of Benjamin Fellows, Oct. 12, 1742 (87: 211) 
to his son, John Brown 3d, with a house, Jan. 20, 1745 (89: 2). The will 
and inventory of John Brown 3d were filed June 9, 1746 (Pro. Rec. 327: 
59). Two acres and all the buildings thereon and the remainder of the 
homestead on both sides the road were devised; to the widow J the house 
and 3f acres with 7 acres of pasture on the south side of the road; to Sam- 
uel, the son, § of the house and 4 acres about it and 14 acres of pasture. 
'Thomas Boardman sold to Benjamin Brown, his interest in the house and 
14 acres, April 6, 1761 (109: 257) and he made a further conveyance of 
the interest which Samuel Brown conveyed to him on Dec. 19, 1758, to 
Benjamin, May 23, 1762 (113: 132). Benjamin Brown, it will be remem- 
bered, owned and occupied the east half of the house of which his brother, 
Elisha was joint owner, 1 and this house and land was left to his sons, Ben- 
jamin and Nathaniel. They bought the 8 acre lot on the west, we have 
noticed, March 31, 1773, and on the same date, they bought of John Kins- 
man the triangular lot, at the junction of the road to Essex and Lake- 
man's Lane (132: 152). This was owned by James Burnham and was 
acquired by Captain Kinsman, in his purchase from the heirs. They 
bought another 8 acre lot of Samuel Kinsman, east of their father's, March 
20, 1783 (215: 188). On the death of their father, they became owners 
as well of the house where they dwelt and land about it and 14 acres of 
land on the south side of the lane (will proved April 3, 1797. Pro. Rec. 
365: 97; land set off June 13, 1809. Pro. Rec. 378: 128). A large clump 
of lilacs near the line of Lakeman's Lane marks the location of the dwelling. 
The inventory of Benjamin (filed June 8, 1816. Pro. Rec. 389: 540) re- 
cords about 20 acres, held in common with Nathaniel and the half dwelling. 
The heirs, Benjamin, Parker and others quitclaimed to Sarah Brown, their 
sister, the east end of the dwelling and If acres of land about it and land 
on the south side of the lane opposite the house, held in common with 
Nathaniel, etc., as well as the 8 acres, which was mentioned in connection 
with the lot just described, July 16, 1817 (281: 235). All the heirs, Ben- 
jamin, Parker, Sarah and Martha, widow of Elisha Brown, had quit- 
claimed to Nathaniel, their interest in7acres 30 poleswith half the dwelling, 
12 poles with part of the barn, an 18 pole lot and the 15£ acres pasture, 
July 10, 1817 (262: 134). Nathaniel Brown bequeathed a third of all his 
estate to his son, David, a third to Lucy, daughter of his deceased son, 
Nathaniel, and the remainder to the four children of his deceased daughter, 
Susanna Lakeman, William, Abigail, Susanna and Laura Ann (will 
proved June 1: 1830. Pro. Rec. 407: 415.) This 8 acre lot with half a 
dwelling was sold by George Haskell to Increase H. and Asa Brown, "the 
homestead of Nathaniel Brown," Nov. 6, 1835 (285: 242). The "Nat lot" 
8 acres was included in the conveyance by Asa Brown to Mrs. Rhoda B. 
Potter, Feb. 11, 1867 (743: 198). Three acres were sold to Francis Brown 
and the remainder, 5£ acres, were sold by Mrs. Potter to Jacob B. Tenney, 
April 29, 1869 (771: 222). Mr. Tenney sold 3£ acres to Willard B. Kinsman,

owner of the adjoining lot, reserving the remainder, April 29, 18G9 
(771:270). The east end of the dwelling with If acres was conveyed 
by Sarah to Elisha Brown, July 7, 1835 (281: 236). Elisha sold to Fran- 
cis Brown, If acre "beginning at the southwest corner by the road, 
straight through the land where a house stood," May 1, 1849 (435: 279). 
The house had disappeared and it was evidently torn down by Elisha and 
the new house built on the knoll near by. 

The 18 rod lot which was quitclaimed to Nathaniel, in the apex of the 
triangle, was also acquired by Francis. Lucia P. Brown and others sold 
iV June 15, 1831 (261: 21), and Charles Kimball for Caroline Brown and 
others sold t%- June 23, 1831 (261: 21), and on the same date, the same 
parties sold the 15 acres to Levi and Francis Brown (261: 21). * 

Francis Brown sold the house and 3 acres of land and the 14 acre pas- 
ture to John Marshall, Feb. 21, 1863(651: 81), Marshall to Jacob B. Tenney 
April 7, 1869 (771: 221). Tenney bought the adjoining lot, as was men- 
tioned. He sold Si acres to Willard B. Kinsman, April 29, 1869 (771: 270) 
and the house with 5 acres and the pasture to Albert Sturtevant, April 30, 
1878 (998: 1). Ada L. Sturtevant, administratrix of Albert, sold to Albert 
S. Garland, April 27, 1881 (1057: 38), who sold to T. M. Norman, July 30, 
1894 (1419:469) and he to W. J. Cameron, April 5, 1901 (1637:396). 

Thomas Perrin's Lot. 

No. 18 on Diagram. 

Thomas Perrin owned a lot in the South Eighth, which he sold to 
John Brown Jr. and James Burnham, 15 acres, Nov. 26, 1729 (53:217). 
Captain John Kinsman, as the heir or purchaser of the James Burnham 
land, came into possession. His heir, Samuel, sold 3 acres to Benjamin 
Brown Jr., tailor, Oct. 9, 1797 (168: 33). On this low and unfit spot near 
the Goose Pond, Mr. Brown built a home and reared a large family. His 
widow, Hannah, and the children, Edmund Brown of Lynn, blacksmith, 
Levi of Ipswich, cordwainer, Perley of Manchester, cabinet maker, John 
Brown Jr. of Ipswich, cordwainer, conveyed to Francis, another son, their 
interest in 17 acres, exclusive of about an acre and dwelling, barn etc., 
which were by deed of gift in the life time of Benjamin, conveyed to Han- 
nah and Francis, in two equal moieties, April, 1838 (329: 295) John P. 
Lakeman, guardian of his children, conveyed $ interest in 17 acres to 
Francis Brown, the estate of their grandfather, Benjamin Brown, Sept. 
18, 1838 (329: 295). He conveyed to Francis their interest in the estate 
of their grandmother, Feb. 20, 1840 (329: 296). 

Samuel Kinsman sold 15 acres, bounding the 3 acres sold to Benja- 
min Brown Jr., on the east and south to Josiah Burnham, Sept. 5, 1S03 
(191: 278). This was sold successively to John How Boardman, March 
13, 1811 (191: 280); John Heard, Feb. 2, 1814 (201: 284); Geo. W. Heard, 
April 2, 1830 (282: 162); Thomas Low, April 1, 1835 (315: 270); John C. 

iFrancis Brown sold an 8 acre pasture on Lakeman's Lane to Henry S. 
Holmes, Mar. 9, 1842 (330: 18)

Notice should be taken of a grant to Mr. John Tuttle, at the very be- 
ginning of the settlement of the Town of 

"one hundred and fiftie acres about sixteene whereof are meadow 
having Mr. Winthrop East the Mile River West Mr. Faune John 
Perkins and Sergeant Howlett South and from the South part of 
Sergt. Howletts upland by a line to the East part of a great swamp 
to the River bounded on the North by great oaks marked neere the 
River and so to a marked tree neere to Mr Winthrop's farm." 
"Memorandum, there is reserved an highway of foure rodd broad 
throu this farm to the Common to be layd out where the Towne shall 
appoint." (Town Record). 
This great tract bounded by a line from the farm of Mr. Alonzo B. 
Fellows to Mile River, and extending to the farm of the late Gardiner A. 
Brown and others, much more than the 116 acres granted, was never oc- 
cupied by Mr. Tuttle. It is interesting to note, however, that some large 
grants were made to individuals in this section of the common lands, 
which came to be known as the Inner Common of the South Eighth. The 
fifty acre Ward's meadow may have been granted to Rev. Nathaniel Ward. 
Mr. Saltonstall had a forty acre grant on Mile River and Thomas Firman 
a similar one. The highway was laid out and reserved for public use, but 
frequently there were no walls or fences and boundaries were dimly defined. 

Denison Lot. 

No. 19 on Diagram. 
In this tract, originally assigned to John Tuttle, by request of Rev. 
Nathaniel Rogers, guardian to the heirs of Col. John Denison, a 10 acre 
lot was laid out to them, which he sold to James Burnham, Feb. 16, 1730-1 
(137: 50). 

John Annable 's Lot. 

No. 20 on Diagram. 

Another lot was laid out to John Annable, which Robert Annable sold 
to Jonathan Wade, Jan. 10, 1728 (66: 20). 

James Burnham's Lot. 

No. 21 on Diagram. 

Thomas Choate and Jonathan Wade, "specially appointed by the 
Commoners and Proprietors of y* common lands of Ipswich at their meet- 
ing, July 9, 1730/' set off the full half part of an old supernumerary right 
to James Burnham, about 10 acres, having land in the possession of Thomas 
Burnham Jr. and the widow of Thomas Burnham deceased, son of Lieut. 
Thomas Burnham deceased, on the east side and John Annable's land west, 
equal to the other half of the right belonging to Wm. Buckley deceased, 
Sept. 28, 1730 (55: 250). 



CANDLEWOOD. 21 

William Buckley Lot. 

No. 22 on Diagram. 

The other half of this Buckley right is undoubtedly identical with the 
lot which John Higginson of Salem sold to William Brown, 

"one half an old right about 9 acres in Brown's Pasture, otherwise 

Browns, Kinsmans and Choates, which was this day by Commoners 

laid out in part satisfaction of a common right belonging to the heirs 

of William Buckley dec'd by virtue of his draught the fourteenth of 

February, 166.4/' March 4, 1729 (55: 76). 

Part of the land included in these grants, is contained in the meadow or 

pasture land, which Thomas Burnham sold to Francis Brown. Thomas 

Meady had his dwelling on a small lot opposite the gravel pit where some 

fruit trees still grow. His homestead is alluded to as early as 1808, but 

no trace of his title can be found. The 6 acre lot was inherited by John B. 

Brown and acquired in part by purchase and was included in the sale of 

the farm to Carlisle and Huckins, Aug. 2, 1860 (610: 233) and in the sale 

by Huckins's heirs to William G. Horton, a half interest in 8 acres, Feb. 

26, 1889 (1243:408). 

The estate of James Burnham included 26 acres on the south side of 
the road, which came eventually, I presume, to Capt. John Kinsman and 
was sold by himself and his son Samuel as has been stated. 

Thomas Burnham's Lot. l 

No. 23 on Diagram. 

Thomas Burnham 4th owned at his death 12 acres, tillage and pas- 
ture, called Brown's lot, which maybe identified with the half right sold to 
William Brown in 1729. His estate included as well 17 acres and the 
buildings and 17 acres pasture land by Bragg's hill, so called (will proved 
May 8, 1730. Pro. Rec. 319: 149-51). It would seem that he was liv- 
ing then upon part of the Bragg farm, which fell to his son, Thomas, and 
was sold by Thomas to his son James Burnham, a cooper, Nov. 10, 1783 
(142: 19). This deed conveyed 26 acres on the south side of the road. 
James Burnham conveyed this to John Willet, Jan. 19, 1793 (155: 167) 
having previously conveyed 4 acres of fresh meadow bounded on the west 
by a row of willow trees, July 28. 1787 (155: 200). 

This row of trees or the later offshoots from the ancient stock still 
remains. John Willet directed in his will that his daughter, Betsey Burn- 
ham, should have the improvement of her late husband's property and 
that his grandchildren, Betsey and Joshua Burnham, children of Betsey, 
should have all the lands conveyed by their father (proved Feb. 7: 1804. 
Pro. Rec. 371:325). 

Betsey Burnham became the wife of Jabez Richards and the portion 
assigned was set off to her, Oct. 7, 1806 (Pro. Rec. 374: 285). She con- 
veyed this fresh meadow to Richards, Oct. 17, 1809 (189: 14). Executions 

i Page 11.

were granted against Richards and the 4 acre meadow was apportioned 
to Daniel Cogswell, July 23, 1819 (Exec. No. 3: 156) and to Langley Brown 
March 2, 1821 (Exec. No. 3: 289). William Cogswell and others, heirs of 
Daniel, sold to Hervey Whipple, March 24, 1866 (923: 46). 

During his ownership of the 26 acre lot, James Burnham had sold a 
half acre to Elisha Brown, which he used as a brickyard, and 2 acres 
to Nehemiah Brown, Sept. 17, 1792 (155: 166). After John Willet's death 
his heirs sold to Joseph Brown. Moses, son of John Willet, sold him 10 
acres, abutting on Daniel Brown's brickyard and Joshua Burnham sold 
him the remainder, 14 acres, bounded south by "Candlewood St. so called," 
reserving the land on which the district school now stands. 1 Both deeds 
were drawn on April 1, 1812 (198: 264). Mr. Brown built the house, as a 
dwelling for his son, James, probably that same year, and sold him the 
house and 3 acres, Dec. 23, 1817. The whole property eventually came 
to him. D. F. Brown and the other heirs sold their interest to Hervey 
Whipple, who had married Martha P., daughter of James Brown, July 
3, 1852 (463: 116). Hisson, George Albert, inherited and still occupies. 
He bought the old brickyard which was sold by James Burnham to Elisha 
Brown. 

John Fawn's Lot, 

No. 24 on Diagram. 

Beyond the Candlewood road, John Fawn, one of the earliest settlers, 
who owned the property and built the oldest part of the house, now owned 
by the Ipswich Historical Society, received a grant of some 25 acres. 
John Webster of Newbury sold to Robert Kinsman, "that farm which 
John Webster his father bought of the assignees of John Fane as by a 
bill of sale under their hands 25 acres at a place called Chebacco," having 
the land of Thomas Bishop southwest, a creek, southeast, Samuel Sy- 
monds and Nathaniel Rogers north, William Story northwest, Nov. 10, 
1652 (Ips. Deeds 1: 182). William Story is not mentioned in the grant to 
John Tuttle as an abuttor and probably bought part of the John Fawn 
land, which was acquired by Robert Kinsman. 

Mr. Kinsman played a famous part in the resistance to Gov. Andros 
in 1687, 2 and was one of that noted group which suffered so severely for 
their patriotic action. He was appointed Quartermaster in 1684 and had 
seen active service in the Narragansett campaign. He had a seat ap- 
pointed to him "at the table" in the meeting house in 1700. As he 
was but twenty-three years old, when he purchased the farm, it is 
probable that at this time he married Mary Boreman, though the date 
of the marriage is not known. No mention of buildings on the farm is 

i The school house formerly stood in what is now the orchard of Geo. A. Whip 
ple'» farm, a little south of the dwelling. A small lot, 36 ft. front, 40 ft. deep was 
bought of Hervey Whipple by the Town and a school house erected, facing the 
Essex road(846 : 136. Feb. 5, 1872.) The building has been removed within a few years 
to Manning St. On the triangular lot in front of this school house lot, a blacksmith 
shop formerly stood.

made in the deed of sale and the young couple may have established their 
home in a new house, planned and built to their mind. Here they spent 
their lives. Five daughters and four sons were born here and here the 
Quartermaster died, Feb. 19, 1712 at the age of eighty three. He con- 
veyed to his son, Joseph, "his now dwelling house," and the 14 acre home 
lot. bounded on one end by the Common, on another by the highway to 
Chebacco and 20 acres of pasture land adjoining, March 21, 1698 (13: 128). 
He was a glazier by trade and in his will he bequeathed to his sons, Joseph 
and Robert, "all my Glazeing Tools, Husbandry and Carpenter Tools, of 
all sorts." He further specified, 

"I give to my daughter, Sarah Perkins, who stayed longest with me, 

my Bed in ye great chamber, with all ye furniture belonging to it." 

"I give to my Daughter, Unice Burnam, my chest of draws." 

"I give to my five daughters, Mary, Sarah, Joanna, Margarett & 

Unice, all my moveable estate of household goods . . . and all my 

quick stock of all sorts & kinds whatsoever, as cattle, sheep & horse 

kind . . . also my crane, tramells & hooks." 

Item, I give unto my maid, Eliz a Dingey, five good sheep if shee abide 

with mee till my decease, otherwise I give but three good sheep." 

(Proved March 12, 1712. Pro. Rec. 310: 520-1.) 
Joseph Kinsman was twenty-five years old when his father conveyed 
the farm to him and as his first child was born two years later, it is prob- 
able that he brought home his bride, Susanna Dutch, about the time the 
conveyance was made. She died on Nov. 9th, 1734, at the age of 60 
years, and he married Sarah Peabody of Boxford, April 27, 1736. By 
his first marriage, there were eleven children, six daughters and five 
sons, all of whom grew to mature age and all were married, save Joseph, 
who died at the age of 23 years. 

He died in the old homestead, no doubt, and by his will (proved May 
25, 1741. Pro. Rec. 24: 232) he divided his estate: 

"I give and bequeath to John Kinsman, my son, all ye land 
whereon the house and barn now standeth, with ye house and barn 
that's now in his possession, 1 with all ye land that I bought of my 
brother Robert Kinsman. That is to be understood, his homestead 
with all ye common rights adjoining to it, that did belong to a south 
eaight so called and allso a nine accor right lying in a pastor called 
Browns & Kinsmans pastor. The which right also belonged to a 
south eaight, and hes to enjoy ye same according to ye quiteclamies 
that wee v alredy given to each other, and also all my righte and 
interst that I have in Wilderness hill pastor so called ..." 

To his sons,Pelatiah andBenjamin, he gave his "now dwelling house," 
his barns and lands, in equal division. To his son Nathaniel, he gave 
£250 in money. His household goods and £5 in money were given to 
his daughters, Susannah How, Eunice and Sarah Wells, Elizabeth Brown, 
Hannah Wallis and Martha Dennis. 

i The property now owned and occupied by Mr. Charles G. Brown, in the same 
aeijrhborhood.

Palatiah Kinsman bought his brother's interest and sold the old home- 
stead and 38£ acres adjoining to John Wainwright, March 18, 1754 (101: 
79), and the pasture land to his brother John. In the previous year, Feb. 
1, 1753 (101: 28) he had bought the Col. Wainwright farm in Argilla and 
he probably removed to that neighborhood. His descendants still retain 
the Argilla farm. Col. Wainwright sold 17 acres on the east side of the farm 
to John Kinsman, Oct. 11, 1754 (101: 62). John Wise, the guardian of 
John Wainwright, the insane son of Col. John, who had inherited from 
his father, sold 12 acres to Isaac Procter, leaving the highway 2\ rods wide, 
Sept. 9, 1755 (103: 111) and 10 acres more to the same, bounded northwest 
by another way from Ipswich to Chebacco, Dec. 30, 1757 (108: 271). 
This completed the sale of the homestead and as no mention is made of 
the buildings, we may presume that they had disappeared. An old well is 
remembered by the older people, near a pair of bars, very near the road, 
a few rods from the corner of the Essex and Candlewood roads, which may 
indicate the approximate location of the ancient farm house. 

Isaac Procter sold 22 acres to Elisha Brown, March 16, 1768 (125: 
105). He sold an acre and a half on the corner to Nehemiah Brown, 
March 16, 1789 (161: 13), which the heirs of Nehemiah sold to Nehemiah, 
the son, July 17, 1821 (248: 157), he to James Brown, with 20 young fruit 
trees thereon standing and bearing, April 5, 1833 (270: 49), and the heirs 
of James to Hervey Whipple, July 3, 1852 (463: 116). His son, George 
Albert Whipple, inherited and still owns. 

A larger lot, 8^ acres with a barn, was sold by Elisha to his son Joseph, 
March 16, 1789, the day on which he disposed of all his property, as we 
have remarked before 1 (157: 140). Joseph conveyed this to his son, 
Joseph Jr., Aug. 1, 1806 (191: 259) and it was inherited by Gardiner A. 
Brown, his son, whose heirs are still in possession. Elisha had sold 12^ 
acres on the south side of these lots to his son Benjamin, April 20, 1768 
(158: 128). Benjamin bequeathed 2| acres on the Candlewood road to 
his son David and the remainder to Benjamin and Nathaniel (proved June 
13, 1809. Pro. Rec. 365: 97). David included this in his bequest to 
the school district and when the Trustees sold the land, Mr. George A 
Whipple bought this lot, triangular in shape. 

Thomas Manning, the executor of Nathaniel Brown, sold 4£ acres to 
Elisha Brown, June 22, 1831 (286: 209). Benjamin Brown conveyed his 
half interest in the remainder to Thomas Brown, July 15, 1809 (194: 176). 
Both these lots are improved by E. Newton Brown, one of the heirs of 
Elisha. 

John Kinsman and Samuel, heirs of Capt. John, sold 47 acres of up- 
land and salt-marsh, opposite the dwelling of John Jr., extending to Haf- 
field's Creek to Elisha Brown Jr. and Joseph Brown, April 24, 1783 (144: 
85). Some division of the land was made, I presume, as in Elisha Brown's 
will, about 32 acres is distributed. He gave 7 acres to Daniel and Elisha, 
20 acres upland and marsh to Daniel, and the Old Field, containing about 
5 acres to the widow (proved May 1, 1809. Pro. Rec. 377: 530).

Daniel sold the 20 acre lot to Theodore Andrews, Jan. 5, 1842 (328: 
251) and he, to Joseph Brown, Jan. 31, 1842 (329: 154). It has descended 
to Gardiner A. Brown and his heirs. The 7 acre lot and the Old Field are 
still improved by the heirs of Elisha. 

John Perkins Sr. and Thomas Howletfs lots. 

Nob. 25 and 26 on Diagram. 
The Gandlewood road, leading toward Hamilton, affords an interesting 
study. Farms were granted on the east side of the road at the settlement 
of the Town. John Fawn, as we have seen, received 30 acres or more on 
the corner of the Chebacco road. 1 

"There was Granted to Thomas Howlett thirtie acres of upland and 
ten of meaddow at the head of Chebacko creeke the meaddow 
lyinge on both sides the Creeke and the upland on the West side of 
the meaddow." (Town Records.) 

"Granted to John Perkins Sen r thirtie acres of upland and ten of 
meaddow lying towards the head of Chebocky creeke havinge Thomas 
Hewlett's Land on the Southwest." (Town Records.) 
"Memorand, that John Perkins the Elder hath sould unto Thomas 
Howlett a psell of Land of forty acres more or less medow and upland 
lying at Chebocye Granted unto the sayde John Perkins in the year 
1636 bounded on the Northeast by a pcell of Land formerly granted 
unto Mr. Faune now in the possession of John Webster and partly also 
on the same syde by the Land of Richard Haffield on the Southwest 
by a pcell of Land granted unto the sayde Thomas Howlett at the 
Northwest end thereof butting upon a highway leading to Chebacky 
at the southeast upon the common." Howlett gave in exchange two 
lots at the east end of the Town and £7 10s. "Entered the 23d day 
of the second month, 1638" (Town Records). 

Mr. Howlett was now the proprietor of 80 acres, more or less, and it 
was probably considerably more as the same tract was reckoned at 100 
acres, when Thomas Bishop gave deed of it. He was in possession of the 
farm as early as 1652. There is no trace of any buildings on the land 
when John Perkins sold to Howlett but one or both of these parties may 
have built on the lots, as the executor of Thomas Bishop conveyed to 
the administrator of Rev. Jonathan Mitchell of Cambridge, who held a 
mortgage, a farm of 100 acres, bounded south and west by common land, 
southeast by John Choate's land with two dwellings, two barns, etc., Dec. 
13, 1677 (Ips. Deeds 4: 115). 

Sarah Bishop of Weathersfield, widow of John, son of Thomas Bishop, 
certified that by his will, Feb. 0, 1670, Thomas bequeathed the farm 
to his sons, John and Thomas, and that an execution was levied by Mrs. 
Margaret Mitchell, who sold the farm to Francis Wainwright (Ips, 
Deeds 4: 449) Sarah conveyed her title to Anthony Checkley, Aug. 30, 
1683 (Ips. Deeds 5:59). Thomas Bishop made similar conveyance, Jan.

20, 1684 (Ips. Deeds 5: 68). Anthony Checkly and Thomas Bishop, late of 
Barbadoes,sold the farm in twolots,one of 66 acres with house, barn etc. to 
John Brown, and 36 acres with house and barn to Sergeant John Choate> 
bounded by Choate's own land partly on the south, Jan. 1, 1684 (lps. Deeds 
5: 57). Brown's title was contested by Bishop, and the 19 papers in the 
case, Bishop vs. Brown cover many pages in the old Court files. The 
Indenture by Francis Wainwright, leasing the farm to John Brown, April 
8, 1682, is beautifully engrossed on parchment. (Vol. 40, leaf 140) . 

John Brown conveyed his farm to his sons, James and William. To 
James, he gave "one full third and another third except what I have given 
to my son William with 6 acres now given him, with my mansion, hav- 
ing Corporal Joseph Kinsman north and east," July 9, 1721 (39: 54). In 
the division, James received 39 acres 56 rods, March 14, 1727/8 (50: 176). 
and William, 27 acres 13 rods, south of James. 

In 1736, this range of farms, Joseph Kinsman's, James and William 
Brown's and Samuel Choate's, whose farm was south of William Brown's, 
was enlarged by a singular instrument. The document begins, 

"Joseph Kinsman, James Brown, William Brown and Mr. Samuel 
Ciioate are the owners of a division of land known by the name of 
Kinsman's, Brown's and Choate's division in the South Eighth, the 
interest of ye sd Kinsman being one old right and half an old right, 
James Brown one old right 3 new rights etc. . . . and whereas they 
have chosen us the subscribers to set out to each of them according 
to their several proportionable parts, 

We have set to Joseph Kinsman, about 7 acres 5 rods etc." This 
pasture measured 59f rods on the way leading to Chebacco pond (the Can- 
dlewood road) beginning at the corner of the way to Chebacco, the Essex 
road. 

To James Brown, this committee set 6 acres 75 rods adjoining his 
homestead, measuring 53 rods on the highway, from the lot appointed 
to Kinsman; to William Brown, 3 acres 2 rods, having 30£ rods frontage; 
and to Samuel Choate, a lot, 42£ rods on the road, 9 acres 133 rods, reserv- 
ing a highway through the same to Chebacco (the present Choate Street). 

The report was filed by the Committee, Francis Sayer, Thorndike 
Low, David Low and William Giddinge, Dec. 29, 1736 (84: 37). This may 
explain why the Gardiner A. Brown buildings are set so far from the road. 
They occupy the same site as the original, and the ancient buildings of the 
Joseph Kinsman and the William Brown farms are known to have been 
set about a similar distance. The front land was a common pasture and 
each house was approached by a lane. One deed contains an allusion to 
the Brown, Choate and Kinsman pasture, as including a part at least of 
the Geo. A. Whipple lot on the west side of the highway. It may be that 
the pasture lay wholly on the west side of the original thoroughfare and 
that after these pastures were annexed to the three farms, the highway 
was changed to its present location. 

James Brown acquired a goodly estate which included houses and

He bequeathed all his real estate on the south side the river to his son 
James, except a 6 acre lot in Lee's meadow; to his son Jonathan, all real 
estate on the north side the river and this 6 acres; to his son Francis, £600 
passable money at the age of 21; a portion to his four daughters, Lucy, 
Eunice, Elizabeth and Sarah. His wife, Sarah, is to be executrix until 
James is twenty-one,when he shall be (proved June 1, 1741. Pro. Rec. 324:576). 

James, the heir of the farm, died and Jonathan also, leaving a widow* 
Elizabeth, who married Samuel Sawyer. A family feud arose over the dis- 
tribution of the estate and Mr. Sawyer cleared himself of any part or lot 
in the matter. He and his wife, Elizabeth, "to end all disputes between 
us and the surviving children of our Honored Father-in-Law, Mr. James 
Brown, shopkeeper, deceased, namely Eunice Brown and Sarah Brown, 
singlewomen, Elizabeth Perkins, wife of Robert Perkins, relating to the 
real estate of said James respecting the Title and Descent thereof on ye 
decease of James Brown, a minor and grandson to the said James and 
only son of Jonathan Brown (by the said Eliz. Sawyer) her former hus- 
band," in consideration of their relinquishing their right in certain part, 
quitclaim to Eunice, Sarah and Elizabeth their interest in the farm and 
the outlying pastures, March 12, 1760 (111: 94). Susanna and Elizabeth 
Sawyer, daughters of Samuel and Elizabeth, gave a similar quitclaim, 
Jan. 8, 1783 (159:13). 

Capt. Robert Perkins, who had married Elizabeth Brown, July 19, 
1753, occupied the farm apparently and his daughter, Elizabeth, became 
the wife of Joseph Brown, son of Elisha, Dec. 3, 1779. They began their 
housekeeping probably in the west half of the old Joseph Marshall house, 
as we have said, 1 but Joseph bought the interest of the heirs, James Perkins

of Nobleborough, John Perkins of Dresden, Robert Perkins of Woolwich, 
Sarah Perkins of Ipswich, f of the estate, Oct. 31, 1797 (167: 265). He 
built the present dwelling and occupied it until his death. He made con- 
veyance of the west half of the dwelling and 4 acres, north of the way to 
the house, to his son Joseph Jr., April 18, 1839 (312: 287). Joseph Jr. in- 
herited the estate and enlarged it by the purchase of 15 acres adjoining the 
farm on the south, from the original William Brown estate, Jan. 31, 1842 
(329: 154). His sons, Joseph P. and Gardiner A. Brown, succeeded to the 
ownership and the latter acquired a complete title by purchase from the 
heirs of his brother, Oct. 12, 1858 (578: 98, 99). He bequeathed it to his 
son, A. Story Brown. 

William Brown, son of John, bought 8 acres of upland of Samuel 
Choate, son of John Choate, March 29, 1707 (20: 202). He was a weaver 
by trade and had already built a house for himself on his father's land. On 
April 18, 1707, John Brown Sen., farmer, conveyed to William, "for his 
encouragement and towards his settlement . . . two acres of my land, being 
part of my farm, whereon y e dwelling house of y e sd son now stands" (28: 
19). In the division of his father's estate, 27 acres 13 rods were laid out 
to him and 1 acre 10 rods in Gould's pasture to make his full portion, March 
14, 1727/8 (50: 176). His farm comprised therefore some 37 acres, with 
other land on the west side of the highway, which will be considered later. 

In the division of his estate, he gave to his son, William, the land on 
the other side the road and also "as long as he shall keep a blacksmith 
shop thereon a piece of land where his shop stands, south on ye yard fence 
before the shop, west on the highway, north on ye lane that leads up to 
my dwelling house." The remainder of his estate was given to Stephen 
and Elisha. His son, Thomas, received money, Benjamin, his right in Ips- 
wich Canada. The children of Nehemiah and his daughter, Dorothy 
Burnham, were remembered (will proved April 2, 1753. Pro. Rec. 331: 
243). A negro boy was valued at £20 among his goods and chattels and 
2 horses at 15-10-0 (331: 296). 

Elisha Brown quitclaimed his interest in his father's homestead, the 
dwelling and southern part of the land, to Stephen, Feb. 22, 1754, 
(117: 95) and June 26, 1762(117: 96), and sold his half of 15 acres upland 
and marsh to his son, Elisha Jr., Feb. 6, 1772 (292: 77). 

The widow of Elisha Jr. received this lot under his will (proved July 
1, 1799. Pro. Rec. 367: 19) (division Pro. Rec. 377: 530). In the division 
of her estate, it fell to Daniel, June 26, 1821 (Pro. Rec. 399: 500), who sold 
to Theodore Andrews, Jan. 5, 1842 (328: 251) and he, to Joseph Brown, 
Jan. 31, 1842 (329:154). The lot was called "theClose" and did not include 
an acre and a half in one corner which is still owned by the heirs of Elisha. 
The engine house stands on this small lot. 

Stephen Brown sold a small lot, 1£ acres, to Timothy Tibbets, a brick- 
layer, "beginning at the corner of the lane that leads to the house,' ' measur- 
ing 16 rods on the road, prior to 1800 (239: 16) and the remainder of the 
*and that came to him from his father, 13 acres, to Josiah Brown, April 14,

1807 (180: 123). No mention of the old William Brown dwelling is made 
and it had probably disappeared. Timothy Tibbets sold the 1\ acres 
he had bought of Stephen Brown to Ephraim Brown, Jan. 2, 1800 (239: 
16) and, he, to Josiah, April 12, 1825 (238:75). The whole lot was inherited 
by his son, Manasseh Brown Jr., whose heirs still own. Eliza Brown, execu- 
trix of James Brown, of Adams Co., Illinois, who died on May 15 th , 
1864, conveyed to Manasseh Jr. all the right James had in several 
parcels (recorded Pro. Rec. 119: 35), Dec. 4, 1865 (693: 265). 

John Choate, we have observed, 1 bought 36 acres with a house and 
barn of Anthony Checkley and Thomas Bishop, Jan. 1, 1684. He had 
previously bought a house and land, "earable and meadow," 12 acres, of 
Thomas Willson, July 8, 1665 (Ips. Deeds 3: 17). He conveyed to his 
son John Jr. "a parcel of upland on which the dwelling house of sd Choate 
Jun. now stands," bounded by his own land toward the north west, May 1, 
1692 (Ips. Deeds 5:505). 

His son, Samuel Choate, received or bought the remainder of the 
John Choate property, with the dwelling bought from Bishop. He sold 
8 acres, before mentioned, to William Brown, his next neighbor, Mar. 29, 
1707 (20: 202). Samuel Choate sold 43 acres with the house and barn 
to Thomas Boardman, reserving a road that is laid out through said prem- 
ises leading to Chebacco, April 16, 1762 (110: 134). Boardman sold 40 
acres with one old building, bounded south by the road that leads to Eben- 
ezer Choate's to William Brown, April 13, 1772 (130: 159). William 
Brown conveyed his homestead on the corner of Fellows Lane to his son, 
James, and 25 acres of the Choate land, June 15, 1786 (145: 185) and the 
remaining 15 acres, July 1, 1786 (145: 200). It was included in the gift 
by will to Josiah, son of James (proved Feb. 7, 1826. Pro. Rec. 405: 224) 
and by similar conveyance to Manasseh Jr., whose heirs still own. 

Gould's Pasture. 

No. 27 on Diagram. 

The great tract of land, now owned by E. Newton Brown, William 
G. Horton, Frederick G. Cross, John W. Mansfield, A. Story Brown, Geo. 
A. Whipple and the heirs of William H. Kinsman, extending from Choate 
Road to Red Root or Red Wood Hill, was included in the early part of 
the eighteenth century in two great pastures, known as Gould's Pasture 
and Wilderness Hill Pasture. 

Gould's Pasture extended from Choate Road to the lot now owned 
by John W. Mansfield. Henry Gould improved a small lot here in 1728, 
as appears from the deed of Simon Wood, Thomas Wade and Jonathan 
Fellows, the Committee of Proprietors to James Brown of "half a certain 
piece of common land in the South 8th, now in possession of Henry Goold, 
11 acres, as the fence now stands," May 8, 1728 (50: 175) and the deed of 
the same to Sarah and Hannah Goole, of half a lot then in possession of

Henry Gould, "Gould to have improvement during his life, May 8, 1728 
(50: 197). But he seems to have had no title to any portion and the whole 
pasture was included in the Common land. 

In the deed of division of Kinsman's, Brown's and Choate's division 
in the South 8th, previously mentioned, the Committee proceeded to assign 
to each a lot in Gould's Pasture. To James Brown, they allotted 37 acres 
48 rods, abutting on the way now known as Choate St. or Choate Road, 
reserving this way and Gould's lot of land, and on the way to Chebacco 
Pond, the present Candlewood road. This is almost identical with the 
lot owned and occupied by E. Newton Brown. To William Brown, brother 
of James, they assigned 14 acres 49 rods. 

In the inventory of James Brown, the Gould's Pasture lot is men- 
tioned, containing 27 acres, June 29, 1741 (Pro. Rec. 324:576). A ten 
acre lot had apparently been sold, which is undoubtedly the lot which 
Thomas Boardman sold to Timothy Thornton and Robert Perkins, sons- 
in-law and heirs of James Brown, on the corner of Choate Road and Candle- 
wood Road, Feb. 5, 1772 (130:69, 131:49). 

In the following year, Thornton petitioned for a division of the Gould's 
pasture lot, which included about 38 acres, joining the lot already owned 
by Thornton and Perkins, "excepting about an acre and a quarter in the 
center thereof, incompassed, belonging to said Robert Perkins," Feb. 8, 
1773 (131: 213). Perkins conveyed this small lot to Thornton, Feb. 11, 
1773 (131:50). In further settlement of the family dispute, previously 
alluded to, 1 Susanna and Elizabeth Sawyer, quitclaimed to Robert and 
Elizabeth Perkins and Timothy and Eunice Thornton, any interest they 
had in the 27 acres Gould's pasture, Jan. 8, 1783 (159: 13). Thornton 
evidently became sole owner of the whole tract. Prior to 1796, he sold 
a lot, presumably about 2 acres, to Elisha Brown. Mr. Brown erected a 
house and barn, which were occupied by his son, Ephraim. In his will, 
he bequeathed to Ephraim, "all the land I purchased of Mr. Thornton, 
with the buildings" (proved July 1, 1799. Pro. Rec. 367: 19). 

On June 10, 1796, Thomas Gilbert Thornton of Pepperelboro, and 
James Brown Thornton of Ipswich, mariner, sold to Joseph and John How 
Boardman, 35 acres in Gould's pasture (163: 123). Joseph's interest 
was conveyed to Ephraim Brown, and by mutual agreement, John How 
Boardman received 20 acres, the southern part, and Brown, 17 acres on 
the north side of the lot, May 25, 1797 (239: 16). Ephraim Brown also 
became owner of the 9 acre lot, assigned to Joseph Kinsman, in Gould's 
pasture in 1736, which Kinsman sold to William Brown Jr., blacksmith, 
May 8, 1742 (84: 134). He sold 30 acres with the buildings, to Josiah 
Brown and Winthrop Boardman, April 12, 1825 (238: 97). The widow, 
Elizabeth Boardman, conveyed her half interest to Manasseh Brown Jr., 
July 7, 1845 (362: 243) and Josiah, father of Manasseh, conveyed his in- 
terest to him, Dec. 18, 1854 (506: 200). Manasseh Brown Jr., sold to E. 
Newton Brown, the present owner, Dec. 21, 1867 (850: 216). 

John How Boardman sold his lot, said to contain 17 acres, to Win-

throp Boardman, March 9, 1820 (223:252). Ephraim Brown acquired 
it and it was later owned by Asa Brown, who held it in 1854. Joseph 
Kinsman owned it and his heirs, Lucy Cogswell of Essex and Aaron Cogs- 
well, Joseph Kinsman, Asa Kinsman, John Brown and his wife, Eunice 
K., in her own right, sold to Obadiah and Joshua Lamson 22 acres, 30 
rods, April 28, 1864 (666: 77). The Lamsons sold to Thomas P. Pingree, 
March 3, 1869 (770: 7), who sold to Joseph Huckins, May 1, 1876 (1012: 
273). The Huckins heirs sold to William G.Horton, Feb. 26, 1889 (1243:408). 
William Brown, son of James, received 14 acres 49 rods in Gould's 
pasture, in the division of the common land, Dec. 29, 1736 (84: 37). He 
bequeathed the bulk of his real estate to his sons, Stephen and Elisha 
(proved April 2, 1753. Pro. Rec. 331: 243). But no mention of Gould's 
pasture occurs in the inventory (Pro. Rec. 331: 296), and he may have 
conveyed this lot to Elisha before his death. Elisha conveyed this lot 
to his brother, Stephen, Feb. 22, 1754 (117: 95). Stephen Brown sold 
the lot in two parts, one of 5 acres abutting on Candlewood road, to Samuel 
and Benjamin Patch, on Jan. 15, 1790 (151:99) and the remainder, 9^ 
acres, to Nathan Fellows, "with liberty of a way one rod wide on the 
south side of land I sold to Samuel and Benjamin Patch," Jan. 15, 1790 
(150: 248). John Patch sold this lot to Joshua Lamson, Feb. 7, 1842 
(329: 192), Lamson to William H. Kinsman, land and building, Feb. 24, 
1869 (766: 259). It was sold to Jacob Scanks, April 1, 1870 (793: 281), 
to William H. Kinsman, June 14, 1878 (1000: 241), to Eben Perkins, 
June 26, 1878 (1000: 242), and to Frederick G. Cross, the present owner, 
Sept. 23, 1887 (1205: 472). The 9 acre lot in the rear, was owned later by 
William H. Kinsman, who sold to Thomas P. Pingree, June 6, 1868(749: 52) , 
and was included in the later sales, already mentioned , to Huckins and 
Horton. 

The Wilderness Hill Pasture. 

No. 28 on Diagram. 

The great pasture, called the Wilderness Hill pasture, on the slope of the 
noble hill, which was called by that name from the earliest times, was 
divided into lots, but no record of the division remains. The first in this 
series was owned by Elisha Brown, son of William, a 19 acre lot (inven- 
tory, 1799 Pro. Rec. 367:225). The inventory of his son, Elisha Jr., 
mentions 21 acres on the hills, May 26, 1808 (Pro. Rec. 376: 456). This 
pasture, now said to contain 23| acres, was sold to Ephraim and Daniel 
Brown, (380: 166). Daniel acquired Ephraim's interest and sold to Theo- 
dore Andrews, Jan. 5, 1842 (328: 251) who sold to Elisha Brown, Jan. 31, 
1842 (329: 126). William T. Cross of Salem became the owner and sold 
to Joseph Rowell, Nov. 1, 1850 (436: 65). Rowell sold the land with a 
barn to William H. Kinsman, March 13, 1854 (491: 137). Mr. Kinsman 
built the house and sold to William T. Cross, April 28, 1856 (530: 117) 
His son, Frederick G. Cross, sold to John W. Mansfield, April 7, 1888 
(1219: 455) and Mr. Mansfield still owns and occupies. 

James Brown's inventory (Pro. Rec. 324: 576. June 1, 1741) con- 



32 CANDLEWOOD, 

tains the items, "23 acres Wilderness Hill on Chebacco side, 20 acres Wilder- 
ness Hill South 8th." Susanna and Elizabeth Sawyer quitclaimed their 
interest in these lots to the other heirs, Jan. 8, 1783 (159: 13). The heirs 
of Robert Perkins, who sold their interest in the farm to Joseph Brown, 
included $ of 22 acres on Wilderness Hill, Oct. 31, 1797 ( 167 265). Joseph 
Brown Jr. inherited, and his son, Gardiner A., bought the interest of the 
heirs of his brother, Joseph P. in 28 acres, the Hill pasture, bounded north 
by William Cross, east, land late of Ephraim Brown and Elizabeth Board- 
man, south by Hervey Whipple, west, by the highway, and about 12 acres 
near the Hill pasture, bounded west by the road, east, by Isaac Knowlton, 
south by William H. Kinsman, Oct. 12, 1858 (578: 99). The heirs of 
Gardiner A. Brown still own the larger lot, but he sold the 12| acre pasture 
to William Henry Kinsman, May 5, 1859 (594: 100). Mr. Kinsman owned 
large tracts on the hills adjoining, some of which had been in possession 
of the family for generations. 

Fuller's Pasture. 

No. 29 on Diagram. 

On the west side of the Candlewood road, the George A. Whipple farm 
has been traced already in the narrative of the old Chebacco road. 1 

Sergeant William Brown and Lieut. Joseph Kinsman bought about 
10 acres of William, John, Ebenezer and Jacob Fuller, May 21, 1733 (70: 
130). They had bought previously of James Fuller, about 10 acres, south 
of the above mentioned purchase, "at a place known as Fuller's Pasture 
in the Inner Common/' April 4, 1732 (66: 32). Mr. Kinsman disposed of 
his interest, as all subsequent conveyances are in the William Brown line. 
Elisha and Stephen, sons of William, inherited the residue of the estate, 
including this lot which is called Link-horn or Lincoln Hi 11 in the inventory 
and a half acre in Lincoln or Link-horn swamp (will proved April 2, 1753, 
Pro. Rec. 331: 243) and Elisha probably built the house and buildings, 
the last traces of which disappeared only a few years since. The cellar 
still remains. £ 

Elisha Brown Jr. bought a half acre of James Burnham, Dec. 17, 1791 
(151: 166) on which he established a brickyard. In his will, he is styled 
"Gentleman," and his inventory mentions a blue coat, waist coat and 
breeches, $9.50, a hat and wig, $4, a fustian suit, $4, loom and weaving 
harness, $5, 2 wheels, $1. His estate included the homestead, 14 acres and 
buildings and the brickyard, 13 acres upland and marsh with a barn, 19 
acres in Wilderness Hill, 5 acres with a house and f barn (the T. M. Nor- 
man place) and the land he had purchased of Mr. Thornton. The Thorn- 
ton property, he gave to his son Ephraim ; to the widow, the 14 acre lot, 
(called 13 acres in inventory) the Old Field, 5 acres, the orchard, £ acre, near 
the house, and the east end of the dwelling; to Daniel, the brick yard, 20 
acres on the Gloucester road, known as Kinsman's land, the west end of 
house and 7 acres on the north side of the lot. Daniel and Elisha received 

1 Pages 21 and 22.

the 23 acre pasture in common (proved July 1, 1799. Pro. Rec. 367: 19), 
Benjamin also occupied part of the house. 

His son, Elisha, (Capt. Elisha) died a few years after and 
there was set off to his widow, Martha, his interest in the dwell- 
ing and'land south of the house, May 1, 1809 (Pro. Rec. 377: 534-5). The 
disposition of several of the lots has been traced already. The homestead 
has continued in the ownership of the heirs. Winthrop Low of Essex 
quitclaimed to Charlotte, wife of Elisha Brown, son of Capt. Elisha, in- 
terest in 7 acres on the north side of the lot, half the house and the half 
acre, called the clay pit, the old brick-kiln, June 20, 1851 (446: 285). Eliza 
Brown conveyed to E. Newton Brown, her right in the homestead and 
lands, March 8, 1871 (850: 216). 

William Brown Jr., the blacksmith, 1 bought 7 acres in the Fuller Pas- 
ture of Nathaniel Fuller, March 28, 1732 (65: 264), on which he built a 
dwelling. His father had received 3 acres in the division of the Brown, 
Kinsman and Choate pasture already quoted, on the corner "of the lane 
leading to Joseph Fellows," and the way to Chebacco Pond, Dec. 29, 1736 
(84: 37). He conveyed to his son William Jr., "2 acres 30 rods upland, 
adjoining my said son's dwelling, " measuring 10 rods on the road to Che- 
bacco Pond and 17 rods 2 ft. on the Lane, March 3, 1736-7 (84: 127). 

The house must have been quite a little north of the present Manasseh 
Brown homestead. Benjamin Kinsman, son of Joseph Kinsman, sold to 
Brown, the 5 acres on the lane adjoining his property, which had been 
assigned to his father in the division of the Brown, Kinsman, and Choate 
pasture, May 25, 1742 (84: 135). 

William Brown Sen., bequeathed to his son, about f of an acre, which 
still remained in his possession, with a reserve of privilege of crossing the 
land for watering, in his will abovesaid, quoted, April 2, 1753 (Pro. 331: 
243). William Brown Jr. conveyed to his son, James, his homestead and 
16 acres and 25 acres on the east side of the Candlewood road, June 15, 
1786 (145: 185) and 15 acres adjoining the latter lot, July 1, 1786 (145: 
200). James Brown conveyed to his son, Josiah, all his real estate, Feb. 
7, 1826 (405: 224) which was inherited by his son, Manasseh Brown Jr. 
Eliza Brown, executrix of James, brother of Manasseh, conveyed to 
Manasseh all his right in various lots, Dec. 4, 1865 (693: 265). The pres- 
ent dwelling was built early in the last century, probably by James 
Brown. 

John Andrews's Farm. 

No. 30 on Diagram. 

John Andrews was the first owner of the' farm, now owned in the main 
by Mr. Benjamin R.|Horton. Andrews sold to William Fellows, "my 
farm on the south side the river bounded with the brook called Mile Brook 
towards the west' the lot of Mr. Saltonstall called the forty acres toward 
the northwest upon the Common toward the northeast and southeast upon 
land of John Fuller toward the South in part and on a swamp called Walkers 

i Page 28. 



34 CANDLEWOOD. 

Swamp toward the south in part with all houses barns etc., Feb. 7, 1659 
(Ips. Deeds 1 : 236). Mr. Fellows gave a deed to Richard Jacobs, whose 
house was on the south side of Mile River, of an acre, which Jacobs had 
bought of John Andrews, the former owner of the farm, in the southwest 
corner of the farm, abutting on the river, Walker's Swamp and William 
Fellows' s land, 1665 (Ips. Deeds 4: 242). 

The will of William Fellows provided for his widow, "a quarter acre 
of good land yearly to. sow flax on," and directed "my son, Isaac, shall have 
the marsh at Hog Island beside what I have given him already," and that 
his sons, Ephraim, Samuel and Joseph should have the other half of the 
farm with the buildings and stock (proved March 27, 1677, filed in Pro. 
Office in Salem). The inventory mentions 38 acres of upland at home, 
"foure rod of ground on the meting house hill where y* old house stood" 
(near the Methodist Meeting House). 

A quitclaim agreement was made, which confirmed Isaac in the pos- 
session of his portion and Ephraim in the posssesion of land and the build- 
ings on the corner of the two ways, and 8 acres by Mile Brook, March 
30, 1702 (Pro. Rec. 308: 24-6). 

i P The parts assigned to Samuel and Joseph will be considered in our 
survey of Fellows's Lane. Ephraim Fellows sold to Robert Kinsman Jr. 
The line was "north as the fence runs (i. e., on Candle wood road) till you 
come to a square with thp. back of the old dwelling house sd Ephraim now 
lives in, also the work house standing below said dwelling house," May 30, 
1704 (16: 145). This locates the Andrews-Fellows house on the line of 
Fellows Lane and probably on the open common, which was made when 
the New Road, so called, was laid out through the Horton farm. It faced 
the south, and the rear side or leanto abutted on the lane. No mention 
of this property is made in Quartermaster Kinsman's will, and he had 
probably conveyed it to his son, Joseph, whose son, Pelatiah, sold to his 
brother, Benjamin, 23 acres, March 8, 1741 (84: 66). No mention is made 
of the old dwelling and it had probably been destroyed. 

Isaac Fellows, son of William, conveyed to his son, Jonathan, "my 
farm, lately in the tenure and occupation of William Durgey, excepting 
5 acres," about 50 acres, dwelling etc., reserving the use of the premises 
during his life, March 31, 1705 (18: 214). Jonathan sold to Benjamin 
Kinsman, April 28, 1742 (82: 103). Kinsman sold both farms, the Isaac 
Fellows 50 acres and the 18 acres 1 he had purchased of Palatiah, Kinsman, 
with all the buildings, to Capt. John Boardman, Dec. 21, 1747 (90: 207). 
Captain Boardman devised to his son Thomas, "all the residue of the real 
estate I bought of Benjamin Kinsman, that I have not given him before," 
a further portion to his son, John, and shares to his daughters, Abigail 
Prime, Sarah and Mary (proved Oct. 13, 1760. Pro. Rec. 337: 352). 

The Boardmans or Boarmans were originally located on East St. and 
by the Labor-in-vain Creek, but they were now well established in this neigh- 
borhood. Thomas Boardman was succeeded by his son, Thomas, who 

1 23 acres in original deed. 



CANDLEWOOD. 35 

conveyed to his sons, Joseph and John How Boardman, "my interest in all 
real estate, whereof my honored father, Thomas Bordman, Gent, died 
seized of, excepting that part set off to my honored mother, Elizabeth as 
her dower," May 28, 1779 (205: 76). John How Boardman conveyed to 
Winthrop Boardman the homestead of John H. and Joseph, March 9, 
1820 (223: 252) and Elizabeth, the widow of Winthrop, sold to Joseph 
Horton, about 90 acres and buildings, March 26, 1846 (365: 127). His son, 
Benjamin R. Horton inherited. The house was built either by Capt. John, 
the first, or Thomas, we may presume. 

John Fuller's Farm. 141.7515 

No. 31 on Diagram. 
John Fuller owned the next farm to the south in 1659. But Robert 
Kinsman Sen., the Quartermaster, conveyed to his grandsons, Stephen 
and Thomas, sons of Thomas deceased, in consideration that Thomas pay 
to his eldest sister, Elizabeth £20 at or before 3 years have expired after 
he is 21, and Thomas pay to the youngest sister, Mary, £20 on same terms, 
a house and 24 acres bounded north and west by Isaac Fellows, southeast 
by the Common, south by land Thomas above sd bought of Town of Ips- 
wich, to be equally divided when they become of age, April 15, 1701 (14: 
117). Thomas, the son of Robert, had acquired the lot alluded to a few 
years before. 

"The Committee impowered to look after Incroachments and to sell 
land for y* payment of y* 5 Town debt have for to Reimburse monej 
payd to Mr. John Rogers for part of his hundred acres of land sold 
unto Thomas Kinsman of Ipswich for his conveniency for y* set- 
ting up his fence on better ground an angle of land adjoining to his 
land near Walkers Swamp Island so called bordering all ye way 
upon his own land in all about two acres and a half, etc." 

Thomas Wade

Thomas Kinsman, mariner, conveyed to his brother, Steven Sen., 
"the tenement of housing and land given me by my grandfather, Robert, 
and part my father, Thomas, bought of the Town of Ipswich," Jan. 3, 1714 
(33: 5) and the heirs of Thomas quitclaimed to Stephen, Dec. 19, 1729 
(56: 277). 

Walker's Swamp Island. 

No. 32 on Diagram. 
Stephen Kinsman gradually acquired a large tract in what was called 
Walker's Swamp, or Walker's Swamp Island, which had been apportioned 
on the basis of old and new rights as the larger Inner Common of the South 
Eighth. He bought of Abraham Fitts, £ of No. 4, May 7, 1730 (56: 276) 
and £ and £ of No. 4, Nov. 22, 1731 (67: 256); of Jacob Perkins, £ of No. 2 
laid out to Jacob and his brother, John, 8 acres, April 12, 1733 (67: 257); 
of Moses Wells, £ of No. 3, 9 acres, Jan. 18, 1734 (75: 31); of Nathaniel 



36 CANDLEWOOD. 

Wells, \ an old lot, 9 acres, "reserving the privilege of a winter way across 
the premises as it was voted by the proprietors," Jan. 18, 1734: (75: 32); 
of Abraham Tilton, \ of an old right, 4 acres, Oct. 25, 1740 (81: 91); of 
Thomas Staniford, \ of 16 acres, July 4, 1741 (85: 68) and of Daniel Stam- 
ford, \ of an old lot, 2§ acres, Oct. 27, 1749 (96: 14). 

His dwelling was on the original farm, but he had built a house on 
Walker's Island which was occupied probably by his son, Jeremiah. He 
bequeathed to his wife, Lydia, the parlor end of his dwelling and garden, 
on the foreside of his mansion house; to his son, Stephen, "that part of the 
dwelling he now lives in, with the old barn and shop, with all my looms 
and weaving tackling, etc. ;" to Jeremiah, "all my lands in Walker's Swamp 
with the dwelling house and buildings thereon" (proved Dec. 27, 1756. 
Pro. Rec. 334: 189). His estate was inventoried, a house, barn and 60 
acres in Walker's Island, dwelling, barn, and shop and 47 acres (Pro. Rec. 
334: 224). Stephen Kinsman and his wife, Elizabeth (Russell), brought 
up a family of twelve children and dwelt in the old homestead until 1767, 
when he sold his farm, 47 acres and buildings, to Samuel Patch, Oct. 23, 
1767 (151:98). John Patch Jr. inherited and built the present house 
about 1800, it is said. The old dwelling, which was burned, stood in the 
field, northwest of the later site. 

John Patch Jr. sold to Joshua Lamson, Feb. 7, 1842, (329: 193) 48 
acres, also 12 acres 32 rods, south of the homestead, "conveyed to me by 
Jeremiah Kinsman," April 6, 1819, Feb. 7, 1842 (329: 192). This lot re- 
verted to the Kinsman ownership as Joshua Lamson sold 47 acres and 
buildings to William H. Kinsman, Feb. 24, 1869 (766: 259); he to Jacob 
Scanks, April 1, 1870 (793: 281) who sold back to W. H. Kinsman, June 
14, 1878 (1000: 241). He sold again to Eben Perkins, June 26, 1878 (1000: 
242), Perkins to Frederick G. Cross, 44 acres and house, Sept. 23, 1887 
(1205: 472), who still occupies. 

Jeremiah Kinsman was living in the house built by his father on 
Walker's Island in 1756. A family tradition affirms that it was erected 
in 1752. He died there in 1818 and bequeathed the Walker's Island farm 
to his sons, Jeremiah and William, in equal parts, but William was to have 
all the farming tools and stock (proved June 2, 1818. Pro. Rec. 393: 139). 
The "cottage," as the lower house is called, was probably built by Jeremiah, 
Kinsman or his son, William. William Kinsman bequeathed all his 
real estate to his son, William Jr. (proved Nov. 7, 1843. Pro. Rec. 412: 
227). He had a large family, all of whom disposed of their interests to 
Will' am H. Kinsman, whose daughter, Rhoda F. Kinsman, still owns and 
occupies. 

John Brown's Farm. 

No. 33 on Diagram. 

The first farm we shall consider on Fellows's Lane is that of John 

Brown's heirs, which has descended in an unbroken family line from the 

original John Brown, who cleared the forest and built his house before 

1660. An ancient Court document is of great interest in this connection.

the said common right to the plaintiffs, sons of the 2d John.

House, barn and Commonage £65 

13 acres of land belonging to the dwelling £65 

a dwelling (in Heart-break Road) £30 

presented by his son John, Sept. 13, 1677 (Ips. Deeds 4: 183). 1 

In the whole area of the great Inner Common of the South Eighth, 
this is the first lot, which was granted to an individual and improved by 
the erection of a dwelling, of which record remains. John Brown Jr. 
bought of Col. Francis Wainwright, the 20 acres which he had bought of 
Samuel Ayers, brother-in-law of Samuel Fellows, March 5, 1702 (26: 101). 
He conveyed this lot, under the name John Brown Sen., carpenter, to his 
sons, John, the 3d of the name, and Nathaniel, May 26, 1714 (27: 28). 
He conveyed lands to his son William on April 18, 1707 (28: 19) and 
May 26, 1714 (27: 28). On June 2, 1721, the surviving children, heirs of 
their brother Nathaniel, then deceased, quitclaimed their interest in his - 
estate to their father "to be at his free dispose to and among whom he 
shall think fit." (313:308). Eventually this farm came to John. 



The John Ross Farm. 

No. 34 on Diagram. 

John Brown, son of John Jr., sold a small lot to Joseph Fellows, June 
13, 1732 (67: 113) and enlarged his farm by the purchase of another ad- 
joining, of John Ross, "a certain old lot about 20 acres in the South Eighth 
with dwelling," bounded south by the land of said John, and west by his

ogy of John Brown, in this volume.

land and that of the widow of James Burnam, Nov. 22, 1737 (125: 42). 
This is easily and surely identified with the farm known later as the Nathan 
Brown farm, to which entrance is gained by a way through the John Brown 
farm. The cellar of the ancient dwelling still remains. 

In his will, John Brown, cordwainer, gave to his wife, Mary, the use 
of his goods; portions of his estate to his grandson, Samuel, son of John, 
late ot Ipswich; to grandson Abel, to granddaughters, Hepzibah and Mary, 
and to his daughter, Sarah Brown. He gave to his daughter, Mary Lufkin, 
his negro child, Luie and negro woman Phillis, after his wife's decease. 
The residue was given to his sons, Joseph and Nathan (proved May 28, 
1759. Pro. Rec. 336: 241). John Brown Jr. had conveyed to his son, 
John Brown 3d, 2 acres in the Inner Common, with dwelling and other 
buildings, Jan. 20, 1745. This lot we have already traced. It is included 
in the T. M. Norman land, now owned by William J. Cameron, on the road 
to Essex. Joseph and Nathan quitclaimed to Joseph and Benjamin Fel- 
lows their title to the west side of a tract of land called Woods or South 
Pasture, Oct. 12, 1742 (84: 178) and Joseph and Benjamin Fellows quit- 
claimed to Joseph and Nathan Brown their interest in the east side of the 
same, Oct. 12, 1742 (87: 211). 

Joseph Brown conveyed to Nathan a half of about 18 acres of upland 
and meadow, May 2, 1760 (109: 155). Nathan seems to have acquired 
the whole of Joseph's portion and owned the original John Brown farm 
and the John Ross farm. He distributed his estate by a will, assigning her 
part to his wife, Elizabeth; rooms in the house to his daughters, Susanna 
and Hannah Boardman; to his sons, Jeremiah, Nathan and Abraham, 
each a quarter of his real estate and to his son, John, "half the dwelling I 
now live in (the John Brown house) half the barn and a quarter of the 
land" (proved June 2, 1794. Pro. Rec. 363: 235). 

John and Abraham, in consideration of a deed of quittance from 
Nathan, quitclaimed to him, 40 acres upland and meadow in the north 
part of the homestead with dwelling, barn, etc., now in occupation of sd 
Nathan, June 11, 1794 (232: 283). Abraham Brown also conveyed to 
Nathan his interest in the Wainwright lot and the west half of the home- 
stead, June 6, 1815 (206: 275). 

John and Nathan died within a few years of each other. The Inven- 
tory of John (approved Apr. 14, 1817. Pro. Rec. 391: 402) included 
about 13 acres, and buildings, the ancestral home lot, the Hill Field or 
Ringe Pasture, 13 acres, the Old Field 16 acres, which he bought of Isaac 
Fellows, Oct. 28, 1807 (184: 1) one half of the Kinsman meadow and 
pastures in Redwood Hill. His widow, Hannah, asked for a division of 
her third and the Committee reported that they had set off to the widow, 
the house and 13 acres and 4 acres in Kinsman's meadow, Dec. 2, 1817 
(Pro. Rec. 390: 486). Theodore Gibbs of Essex who had married Lucy 
Brown, daughter of John and Hannah, conveyed to Hannah, his wife's 
interest in the farm, June 28, 1831 (278: 193). 

Nathan Brown's will (proved May 4, 1823. Pro. Rec. 401: 78) dis- 
tributed his belongings to his wife, Abigail; to his sons, Nathan, Langley 



CANDLEWOOD. 39 

and Francis, f of the real estate and the remaining third to Francis. Na- 
than and Langley sold to Francis, Feb. 4, 1823 (232: 285). Nathan con- 
veyed to Langley the 20 acres (Wainwright) and west half of the house he 
had bought of Abraham, May 5, 1823 (232: 284). Francis conveyed to Lang- 
ley an undivided half of his father's estate, half of all he devised him by 
will and half of all his mother, Abigail Brown, and brothers had conveyed 
to him since her decease, the homestead and buildings and the Hill Pas- 
ture about 30 acres, May 5, 1823 (233: 290). Langley and Francis sold 
to John P. Lakeman the Wainwright lot and west half of the house, Dec. 
25, 1826 (245: 75). An execution was levied on Lakeman and his estate 
was sold to John Brown Jr., May 11, 1836 (289: 56). He was son of John 
Brown Jr. whose will was probated, April 14, 1817. His sister, Sarah, 
conveyed to him, styled John Brown 2d, her interest in the homestead, 
"with all rights of reversion in the dower of our mother Hannah, and all 
rights I have as heir to my sisters, Clarissa Brown, Lois Brown and Abigail 
Brown deceased," July 11, 1834 (277: 162). By the purchase of the John 
P. Lakeman interest he became owner of the whole dwelling and the origi- 
nal 13 acres, the Ringe Pasture, the old field, the Wainwright land and 
half the Kinsman meadow. His heirs still own and it is one of the few 
instances in which there has been no departure from the original line of 
descent and the same family has dwelt upon and tilled the same land from 
a date prior to 1664 to the present year. The original dwelling was re- 
placed a century or more ago by the present mansion, which contains 
some timbers of the ancient house. 

To follow the fortunes of the old John Ross or Nathan Brown farm 
in the midst of woods and swamps, Langley and Francis Brown sold to 
Oliver Appleton Jr. a farm and all buildings, Oct. 20, 1823 (236: 145); 
Appleton to Ebenezer Cogswell and John Dane, 54 acres and buildings, 
March 16, 1825 (237:285). Mr. Cogswell sold 3 acres to Capt. Joseph 
Gardiner, owner of the adjoining estate, Jan. 4, 1837 (296: 294). John 
Dane sold to George Dane, the 30 acre field north of the ancient house lot, 
Oct. 19, 1842 (469: 138), Dane to Ezekiel Merrill, Jan. 8, 1853 (473: 252), 
he, to Alonzo B. Fellows, Oct. 22, 1857 (560: 276) and Mr. Fellows to 
Joseph A. Brown, son of John Brown 2d, May 3, 1883 (1107: 249). 

The old house lot, in which the cellar alone remained at that time, was 
sold by John Dane and Ebenezer Cogswell to John Tuttle, Tristram Apple- 
ton and Humphrey Lakeman, 12 acres, reserving the cartway on the east 
side of the old cellar, April 16, 1835 (312: 53). Lakeman conveyed his 
interest to Appleton, June 13, 1836 (291: 50) and Tuttle conveyed, Feb. 
28, 1839 (312: 53). Mr. Appleton sold the lot to Thomas and John Rob- 
erts, who owned the adjoining estate, April 10, 1861 (620: 297) and it was 
included in the subsequent sales to Samuel M. Haskell, June 11, 1890 
(1283: 514) and to the mortgagees, Alphonso M. Knowlton and Frank C. 
Richardson, April 10, 1901 (1637: 279). 

Returning now to the William Fellows farm, Samuel Fellows Sen., 
late of Ipswich, now of Newbury, in consideration of many and great kind- 
nesses from his loving brother-in-law, Samuel Ayres Sen. of Newbury, 



40 CANDLEWOOD. 

"having for many years living with him & have been provided for by him 
as also for & in consideration of an obligation that he hath this day with 
his two sons Samuel Jun. and John," conveyed to Samuel Ayres Sen., 
"all my housing and land, upland and meadow which were given to me by 
my father William, J of £ of his farm, £ of the building," May 23, 1701 (14: 
34). Isaac Fellows and others, executors of Joseph, quitclaimed to Samuel 
Ayres, assignee to Samuel Fellows, a small tract, March 30, 1702 (15: 151). 
Samuel Ayres Sen. sold to Francis Wainwright, 20 acres upland and swamp 
Dec. 29, 1702 (18: 5) and Col. Wainwright sold to "farmer" John Brown, 
March 5, 1702 (26: 101). The subsequent history of this lot has already 
been traced in connection with the John Brown farm. 

Joseph Fellows, 2 son of William, 1 as has been mentioned 1 received 
by the will of his father a third of a half of the farm. His brother Eph- 
raim received in addition to the homestead, 8 acres on the present Fellows 
Lane, which was set off to him in the division of the property (Pro. Rec. 
308: 24,25,26). He conveyed this to Joseph, bounded by other land 
of Joseph's on the northwest and the land of Ephraim and Samuel, 
southeast, in 1687 (Ips. Deeds 5: 578). It appears from this that Joseph's 
share of the William Fellows farm and this 8 acre lot, were west of the 
20 acre lot, which was conveyed by his brother Samuel to Samuel Ayres 
and which we have identified with the 20 acre field now owned by Mr. John 
H. Brown. Joseph's farm, therefore, is included in the estate of Mr. James 
H. Proctor. 

The Saltonstall Forty Acres and Thomas Firman's Farm. 

Nob. 35 and 36 on Diagram. 

The William Fellows farm was bounded on the northwest by the lot 
of Mr. Saltonstall, called the forty acres, and this lot, called the ox pasture 
in later deeds, was the northwest bound of Joseph's original estate. 
He began at once to enlarge his domain. His first purchase appar- 
ently was a three acre lot, which is alluded to as in his possession, April 18, 
1681, in a deed of exchange between John Low and himself. John Low 
was then the owner of a tract of upland and meadow bounded by the Mile 
Brook, the Saltonstall pasture and the "common ground," which Thomas 
Firman had sold to Thomas Low and Edward Bragg, Oct. 27, 1647 (Ips. 
Deeds 1: 35) and which had been conveyed or bequeathed by Thomas to 
John, his son. The deed of exchange conveyed to Joseph Fellows, 8 acres, 
bounded southeast by the Saltonstall 40 acres and the 3 acres he had 
bought of Low, southwest by Mile Brook and northwest by Low's other 
land in consideration of a transfer by Fellows of an 8 acre lot, farther west 
(10:7). 

In 1683, April 3d , Fellows bought a lot of Nathaniel Jacobs which Jacobs 
describes, "all my land on the north side of Mile Brook and on ye North 
side of y* bridge bounded with Mr. Saltonstall's 40 acres on the northwest

running down to the brook and bridge on the southeast the land of Joseph 
Fellows southwest and northeast reserving the right for highway to Town 
through the aforesaid as he hath through Mr. Saltonstall's 40 acres, 1£ 
rods wide" (10: 7). 

Richard Jacobs received a grant of 40 acres, more or less, of upland 
and meadow on the other side of Mile Brook which was recorded in the 
Town book, Aug. 20, 1638. In this secluded spot, he built his dwelling. 
The most direct way to Town lay over Mile River and through the pas- 
tures to the way now known as Fellows's Lane. He built a bridge prior to 
1658 and on Dec. 6, 1658 it was "Ordered that George Giddings and Ed- 
ward Bragg are appoynted to lay out a highway through Mr. Saltingstalls 
40 acres and a pt. of John Andrews his farm to the Bridge over the River 
to Richard Jacob's House a rod and a half wide." Jacobs desired full 
control of the land on both sides of the River, perhaps to facilitate the 
erection or maintainance of the approaches to the bridge which were still 
in good condition, when Mr. Proctor, the present owner, built the beauti- 
ful bridge which spans the River at the same point. He bought, therefore, 
an acre of land of Mr. Andrews, the deed of which was given by William 
Fellows in 1665 (Ips. Deeds 4: 242) but as Andrews sold in Feb. 7, 1659, 
he probably bargained for the land immediately upon the official lay-out. 
Richard Jacobs bequeathed his lands to his brother Nathaniel, in 1676 
(Ips. Deeds 4: 86.) The purchase of this small piece gave Mr. Fellows 
access to this very convenient way through the Saltonstall land. Thomas 
Jacobs, the administrator of the Joseph Jacobs estate, sold the farm with 
dwelling and other buildings, to Samuel Chapman, Nov. 1, 1701 1 . . . 
"leaving ye highway and causeway to ye river for equall improve- 
ment of Samuel Chapman Thomas Jacobs and the heirs of said Jo- 
seph Jacobs . . . also part of said 65 acres is granted sd Samuel Chap- 
man for a highway on ye easterly side of the river to ye Common

sd Jacobs own land granted by ye Town of Ipswich allso sd Thomas 
confirmeth to sd Samuel Chapman the privilege of horse and foot

tThe heirs of William Fellows went to law with the executor of Richard Jaco hs's 
estate to settle the title to a 3 acre lot near the bridge and another lot in Sept and 
Nov. 1678. In Vol. XXIX of the Court Papers twelve original documents in the 
case, Fellows ct al. admrs. v. Jacob Exec, of Richard Jacob, Sept., 1678 and twenty- 
six papers in the case, Fellows et al. in Rev. v. Jacobs Execr. of Richard Jacobs, 
Nov., 1678, are filed. They show that the original owner Corporal John Andrews 
leased *he farm to John Choate and Samuel Ingalls before he sold to William Fellows, 
and the quitclaim of Sarah, widow of John Andrews, declares that he was resident 
In Lynn when he died. This was executed April 4, 1663. 

Choate and Ingalls quarreled with the Jacobs's over their claim to ownership of 
certain lots, and cm down the bridge, and at a later period Ephraim Fellows re- 
peated It.

foot way to ye slue bridge, . . ." Nov. 1, 1701 (14: 256). 

Chapman sold to John Annable Sen., March 18, 1701-2 (15: 56). 

Joseph Fellows bought a 9 acre lot of John Low, which may have 
been the same he exchanged with him, Feb., 1685 (Ips. Deeds 5: 437) and 
a ten acre upland lot with growing timber of John Low Sen. and Dorcas, 
his wife.. Jan. 1, 16S9 (10: 8). He had bought 30 acres altogether of the 
John Low land. His inventory included house, barn and homestead lot 
of 26 acres, and 30 acres bought of John Low which extended from the 
Saltonstall lot to Abraham Tilton Jr. (the Ebenezer Fall farm) 1693 (Pro. 
Rec. 303: 159). One item is of special interest, a pigeon net 10', suggest- 
ing the great flights of wild pigeons which Cooper describes in the Leather 
Stocking tales. 

His wife Ruth, as the deeds reveal her, was a woman of uncommon 
energy. She had built an addition to the homestead, as his will specifies 
that the widow shall have rooms in the dwelling "the part of the house y* 
said Ruth built." His son Joseph consented that his brother William 
should enjoy their mother's dowry. His portion was two thirds of the 
house, barn and 24 acre lot, 1 acre orchard and 8^ acres of upland in the 
30 acres bought of John Low. William had the residue (proved June 17, 
1703. Pro. Rec. 310: 22, 23). The widow bought 4 acres adjoining the 
estate of John Low Jr., carpenter, who had bought the residue of his 
father's estate, Dec. 7, 1693 (10: 5). 

Joseph, 3 son of Joseph, 2 by successive purchases, greatly enlarged the 
farm he had inherited. He acquired the interest of his mother and brother 
in the homestead apparently and made his home there. In consideration 
of upland and marsh received from his brother William, he conveyed to 
him, one acre of upland, which he had bought of the Town, "lying by ye 
widow Fellows house, bounded northwest on Thomas Manning's land, 
northeast on Town Common, south on widow Fellows land," Nov. 19, 1714 
(69: 151). He bought lots in the Inner Common, which abutted on Fel- 
lows' s Lane, opposite his farm, f of J of a New Common right in the farther 
division of the South Eighth of John Brown, June 11, 1724(50: 217) and a 
5 acre lot of William Hunt in the Ringe pasture, May 31, 1727 (50: 216). 
Four years later, he secured the great Saltonstall pasture from the heirs, 
May 12, 1731 (67: 121). It was always called the 40 acre lot, but the deed 
specifies 52 acres. It joined his homestead on the west, but seems to have 
extended across the way now known as Fellows's Lane. The cartway 
which still runs toward the River is undoubtedly the way laid out in 1658 
and the Saltonstall lot may be identified with certainty by this. Another 
purchase from John Brown was made in 1732, June 13 (67: 113) and a 
4£ acre lot in the south end of the South Pasture, abutting on his land on 
the south, was bought of Daniel Ringe et al., May 4, 1733 (67: 113). He 
also bought of Samuel Ayers a 9 acre lot, which abutted on the Essex road, 
as it is now called, March 8, 1738 (88: 142) but sold to Joseph Manning, 
June 27, 1740 (88: 132). This is included in the Willard H. Kinsman 
farm, as has already been noted in the study of that locality. He made 



CANDLEWOOD. 43 

an exchange with Manning and secured an acre lot near "Proctor's brook, 
so called," which intersects Ward's meadow, June 27, 1740 (88: 142) and 
with his son, Benjamin, bought an interest in the west side of Woods or 
South Pasture, of Joseph and Nathan Brown, Oct. 12, 1742 (84: 78). Joseph 
Fellows, now called Senior, sold to Benjamin, his son, a piece of woodland, 
5 or 6 acres, "not far from my dwelling house," etc., Feb. 20, 1750 (97:35). 
By his will, he provided for the distribution of his goodly farm. To 
his wife, Mary, he assigned the use of a third; to Benjamin, 
"all I have quit to him before, also a piece of fresh meadow at the 
west end of homestead, about 5 acres including, Ash Island; to his son, 
Joseph Jr. i of the residue. He had previously sold him 1 acre in the home- 
stead and another acre, bounded on the northeast by land in the possession 
of Nathan Brown, the line running through a pond to other land of Joseph 
Jr., March, 1756 (101:279). 

To his grandson, Nathan, he gave a fourth and the great chamber in 
the east side of the dwelling and a new building adjoining the east corner 
of said house; to Jacob and Sarah, some portions and the rest and residue 
to his son, Daniel, "as he is in measure bereft of his reason" (proved Oct. 
4, 1762. Pro. Rec. 340: 26). The inventory mentioned house, barn and 
115 acres of land (340: 67). 

In the division of the estate, Joseph Jr. received the 2 acres and 36 
poles previously deeded to him, and 19 acres 20 poles in the northwest part 
of the farm on Mile River. Nathan's portion was 14 acres 95 poles in the 
homestall, abutting on Fellows's Lane apparently, and "the way leading 
to the house," Nov. 15, 1762 (Pro. Rec. 344: 460). The widow's thirds 
were apportioned after her death to Daniel, 12 acres, the line running east 
by Mile River to a stake near the old bridge; to Nathan, about 9 acres, 
bounded south by the river, west by Daniel's land, April 1, 1776 (Pro. Rec. 
351:320, 321). 

William, 3 son of Joseph, 2 and brother of Joseph, 3 as was noted, 1 received 
$ of the dwelling of his father, 22 acres in the Low 30 acre lot, and by 
agreement, his mother's dowry. The widow, Ruth, bought 4 acres of 
John Low Jr. She built a house, barn and other buildings on her estate, 
mentioned in Joseph's deed to William, in 1714 (69: 151) and William in 
all probability, made his home with her. This new dwelling, is probably 
the ancient dwelling, part of which is yet owned and occupied by the Fel- 
lows heirs, and the main building, removed and remodelled, is owned by the 
heirs of Daniel W. Appleton. She bequeathed to Joseph Jr. 5 shillings, 
to her daughters each a sum and to William, the house, barn, stock, etc. 
(proved May 13, 1729 Pro. Rec. 316: 347). Samuel Waite et al. conveyed 
to William Fellows that part of the estate of Joseph set off to our mother, 
Ruth, for her thirds, "excepting title in 1 acre of land laid off to her, adjoin- 
ing the river, above ye old sluce bridge, bounded by our brother, Joseph's 
land," Dec. 2, 1733 (69: 151). William Fellows conveyed to Joseph Jr.,

his brother, 13 acres on Mile River, 26 acres bounded northwest on the 
Saltonstall lot, and 5 acres laid out for Joseph's common right, Dec. 20, 
1733 (67: 113). He bequeathed his whole estate to his wife, Deborah. 
(Proved April 8, 1754. Pro. Rec. 332: 186). The estate contained house, 
barn and 34 acres adjoining (Inventory filed, April 15, 1754 Pro. Rec. 
332: 191). The widow, Deborah, conveyed her interest in § of William's 
estate to Joseph, John Brown Jr. and his wife, Mary, Samuel Waite and 
his wife, Ruth, Thomas Low and his wife, Abigail, and Sary Harnden, in 
consideration of a deed of conveyance of J of real estate of William, April 
3, 1754 (100: 203). Samuel Waite and Ruth conveyed f of 22 acres and 
| of | of the buildings to Benjamin Fellows, Nov. 12, 1755 (115: 96). The 
widow, Deborah, conveyed her remaining interest to him, April 1, 1756 
(104: 5), Joseph Fellows Jr., Thomas Low and Abigail, their interest, § of 
| of 23 acres, May 14, 1756 (123: 279), Mary, widow of John Brown, her 
interest in the "upland of the homestead that belonged to my brother, Wil- 
liam Fellows, deceased," Jan. 18, 1760 (115: 59), Joseph and Nathan Brown 
her sons, their interest, Nov. 24, 1764. 

The sons of Joseph, 3 we have noted, were Benjamin, Joseph, Jacob 
and Daniel, to each of whom he bequeathed a portion of his real estate. 

Joseph Whipple's Lot and others. 

No. 37 on Diagram. 

Benjamin Fellows, 4 son of Joseph, 3 had acquired some landed prop- 
erty before his father's death. On July 1, 1728, Joseph Whipple, exe- 
cuted a deed to Thomas Wade, 

"in South 8 on the south side of highway laid out from y* saw mill to 
Braggs hill about seven acres bounded west on Thomas Manning 
south land laid out to William Fellows east land laid out to Thomas 
and Jonathan Wade north from a stake by corner of sd Thomas and 
Jonathan Wade standing on the south side of highway aforesaid on 
a strait line to the corner of Mr. Mannings land . . . reserving to myself 
so much of the land bounded as shall be at any time hereafter laid 
out for a way to William Fellows" July 1, 1728 (58: 194). 

Timothy Wade sold to Benjamin Fellows, two lots, one now said to 
contain 11 acres, bounded south by William Fellows, north, the Hamlet 
road, east by Dr. Joseph Manning and west by John Manning, the other 
containing 8 acres, bounded south and east by Joseph Fellows, west by 
Joseph Manning and north by the Hamlet road, "reserving out of the first 
piece a way 1£ rod wide, from ye gate next ye road leading from y* saw 
mill to Chebacco, to William Fellows land," Nov. 24, 1740 (89: 119). The 
intervening lot, then owned by Dr. Manning, was also acquired by him. 
On these lots, Benjamin built his dwelling, which still stands on Lakeman's 
Lane, though the old chimney has been removed and the outer appearance 
changed by Mr. William J. Cameron, the present owner. The old road 
from the present Lakeman's Lane turned in east of the house originally. 
It was used apparently in 1728 but in 1740, it was well defined and a gate 



CANDLEWOOD. 45 

was hung across it, as was common with many ways. As has been stated, 1 
he purchased the interests of most of the heirs of his uncle William's farm. 
He bought from his brother, Joseph Jr., 3 acres, near a dwelling house 
in the possession of Abner Tarbox, March 27, 1756 (104: 75). His name 
cannot be found in the records of the Registries, and I am at a loss to know 
where he was located. Probably he was a tenant in one of the Fellows 
houses. He sold to Joseph, 8 acres upland and meadow, bounded by Mile 
River and the highway, July 12, 1757 (105: 206) and bought from him, his 
right in 17 acres, excepting a highway 2 rods wide through it from land he 
bought of his father, bounded by the river, Low's island and John Man- 
ning, July 20, 1757 (135: 204). Joseph Jr. and Susanna sold him 3§ acres 
of upland, Nov. 18, 1763 (135: 205). His inheritance from his father has 
already been noted. 2 He bought of Nathan, his nephew, 2 acres 26 rods, 
"beginning at the great gate which hangs across the road leading from 
Benjamin's to Isaac's," March 15, 1765 (135: 205). As guardian of his 
lunatic brother, Daniel, he had sold 4£ acres, beginning at the great gate 
by the road, southeast about 76 rods, to the lane that leads to the spring 
on the north side of the highway to Nathan, 1765 (135: 249). In like 
fashion he sold 3 acres of Daniel's land on Mile River, to John Jones (133: 
61), which Jones sold to him the same day, May 12, 1772, (135: 206) and 
4 acres near the great spring abutting on the river, to Barnabas Dodge 
March 28, 1777 (135: 136) which Dodge sold to him on April 4, (135: 136). 
By purchase from the heirs of William, he seems to have secured much 
of the real estate, but slight title in the dwelling. 

He died in Nov., 1794, and devised his estate; to his widow, Rebecca, no 
real estate; to his son, Ephraim, the landing place which came to him from 
his father, "and that which fell to me from my brother, Daniel;" to his 
son, John, 2 acres of the homestead; all the remainder to John and Eph- 
raim, equally, but Ephraim to have the dwelling, (proved Dec. 21, 1794 
Pro. Rec. 363: 434, 5). The inventory included house, barn and other 
buildings with about 44 acres on the east side of the way, about 24 acres, 
called the Cow Pasture, Old field and Low's Island, about 16 acres called 
the further meadow and upland, about 4 acres of upland adjoining Nathan 
and Isaac (363:449). 

In the division, John Fellows received 20£ acres on Mile brook, called 
the further meadow, 3£ acres which came from Daniel, 13J acres called 
Shoemake Island, upland (on the east side of the way from Lakeman's 
Lane to Daniel W. Appleton's) and 12 acres of pasture, including William's 
orchard so called. Ephraim received the dwelling and 30f acres about it 
(* 'exclusive of the proprietor's way, which we consider and allow to be 1$ 
rods wide from John's land to said Ephraim's garden, from thence one 
rod wide to the highway" ) and 16| acres bounded by Mile River, Manning's 
land and the proprietors way (Pro. Rec. 363: 536). 

Joseph Fellows, 4 son of Joseph, 3 a tailor, known as Joseph Jr., received 
from his father, by gift or puro'iase, 2\ acres, bounded southeast and

northeast on John Brown, west and south on the homestead, " always re- 
serving a cart path through the premises," Dec. 12, 1734 (72: 258). His 
father conveyed him an acre adjoining and another acre near the sheep 
pasture, March, 1756 (101:279). 

He built his house on this spot, a small, low dwelling, still standing 
and owned in recent years by Thomas Roberts and Samuel M. Haskell. 
Deborah Fellows, widow of his uncle William, conveyed to him a third 
of William's homestead, April 1, 1756 (103: 71) and he bought 8 acres 
already mentioned of his brother Benjamin, July 12, 1757 (105: 206). 
By his will (proved May 10, 1764. Pro. Rec. 341: 387) he devised to 
his widow, Susanna, the use of a third; gifts to his son, William and to 
daughters, Sarah Potter, and Deborah Goodhue; to Susanna, one half 
of the west end of the dwelling while single, half of the looms, half of the 
slays, and the same to Abigail; to his son, Isaac, the remainder, including 
all the real estate. The estate comprised house, barn and cow house^ 
4 acres adjoining, and 26 acres adjoining Benjamin Fellows, (filed Oct. 8, 
1764. Pro. Rec. 341:412). 

Isaac Fellows, 8 son of Joseph, 4 sold 9f acres, part of the 26 acres, Cow 
Pasture, to Nathan Fellows Jr., Feb. 23, 1816 (210: 108). Nathan Fel- 
lows sold to Ebenezer Cogswell, Sept. 15, 1827 (246: 108) who sold to Daniel 
Appleton, Feb. 2, 1844 (342: 152) whose heirs still own. It is bounded 
by the highway, is crossed by the old cart-way and is undoubtedly part 
of the original Saltonstall 40 acre lot. Isaac sold the balance of the Cow 
Pasture, 16 acres 4 poles to John Brown, Oct. 28, 1807 (184: l)andithas 
passed by inheritance through successive generations to Mr. John H. Brown 
its present owner. This also was undoubtedly part of the Saltonstall lot 
Isaac sold the homestead with 8 acres to his son, William, a cordwainer 
Nov. 20, 1821 (229: 197). William Fellows, 6 son of Isaac, 5 sold to Capt.' 
Joseph Gardiner of Boston, Oct. 27, 1832 (268: 14). Capt. Gardiner bought 
3 acres adjoining of Ebenezer Cogswell, part of the old Nathan Brown 
farm, Jan. 4, 1737 (296: 294). Capt. Gardiner sold the house and 11 acres 
to Thomas Roberts, of Gloucester, shoemaker, Aug. 26, 1837 (302: 91.) 
Thomas and John Roberts bought of Tristram Appleton, 10 acres, part of 
the old Nathan Brown farm, including the cellar of the ancient dwelling, 
April 10, 1861 (620: 297). John Roberts and Sally sold to Samuel M 
Haskell, June 11, 1890 (1283: 514). It was sold under foreclosure of mort- 
gage to John H. Brown, April 9, 1901 (1637: 277) who conveyed to Al- 
phonso M. Knowlton and Frank C. Richardson, April 10, 1901 (1637: 279). 

Daniel Fellows, 4 son of Joseph, 3 a man of unsound mind, received 
from his father, as has been stated, 1 the residue of his estate. Guardian- 
ship of Daniel was granted to his brother, Benjamin, Oct., 19, 1762 (Pro 
Rec. 340: 65). His home was in the homestead. After his death, division 
of his estate was made. The house, barn and 2 \ acres adjoining were as- 
signed to Nathan, his nephew, 3|- acres near the river to his brother, Jacob, 
the same to his sister, Sarah Dodge, and \\ acres to the heirs of Joseph, 
(filed May 4, 1779. 353: 453,4).

CANDLEWOOD. 47 

Returning to the heirs of Benjamin, 4 the eldest son of Joseph, 3 John 
Fellows, 5 son of Benjamin, 4 received half of the farm at his father's death. 
The lots have already been specified. 1 No mention was made of the dwell- 
ing formerly William's, in Benjamin's will, but he had acquired an interest 
in it by purchase from the other heirs. John was in possession at his 
father's death and had acquired title, though no record of purchase re- 
mains. He conveyed the west half of the dwelling, with a small lot and a 
small piece opposite, 5 rods by 3, to Nathan Fellows Jr., June 9, 1807 (201: 
71) and another lot, 12 rods by 5, to the same, Dec. 15, 1815 (214: 167). 
To Joseph, cordwainer, he conveyed the east half of the house and about 
10 acres, 9 acres on the opposite side of the road with a chaise house and 
35 acres of pasture and tillage, Dec. 31, 1823 (234: 105). Deferring con- 
sideration of the farm of Ephraim for a little, the estates of Nathan and 
Joseph may now be traced to completion. 

Nathan Fellows, 5 son of Nathan, 4 Joseph, 3 by the will of his grand- 
father, received I of his farm, containing 115 acres, and part of the dwell- 
ing. 2 A 14 acre lot in the homestall was set off to him and a strip of land 
10 ft. wide at the north and east end of the house, and in the division of the 
widow's dower 9 acres more were assigned him. His uncle, Benjamin,guardian 
of his father, sold him 4^ acres on the opposite side of Fellows Lane, two 
acres of which he retained. 3 His aunt, Sarah Dodge, sold him the 3| acres, 
allotted her in the division of the estate, March 8, 1783 (140: 177). 

Nathan Fellows sold the farm, the house and 35 acres and 2 acres on 
the opposite side of the road to Nathan Fellows 3d, Oct. 17, 1835 (286: 219). 
Nathan Fellows 3d, who had now taken a middle initial W., sold the 
same to Simon Brown, April 3d, 1845 (353: 71), and it was sold by him to 
Simon Kinsman, April 3d, 1845 (352: 201). He bought an acre of Elisha 
Brown, part of the original estate, Nov. 3, 1847 (428: 33) and sold the 
whole farm to Ezekiel Merrill, May 4, 1850 (428: 33). He sold to Alonzo 
B. Fellows, 7 son of Joseph, 6 Oct. 22, 1857 (560: 276) who sold to James H. 
Proctor, the present owner, January 30, 1899 (1568: 464). 

Nathan Fellows Jr., received from John Fellows, the west half of his 
dwelling and several lots. 4 He bought of Isaac Fellows, 9| acres, part of 
the cow pasture on Fellows Lane, Feb. 23, 1816 (210: 108). He sold his 
whole estate to Ebenezer Cogswell, Sept. 15, 1827 (246: 108) who sold to 
Simon Kinsman the half house and an acre opposite, April 1, 1830 (257: 
10.) Mr. Kinsman sold back to Mr. Cogswell, Aug. 9, 1830 (257: 213) who 
sold then to Joseph B. Fellows, Sept. 6, 1830 (257: 214). But he was then 
deeply involved in financial difficulties. Suit had already been brought 
against him by Ammi Brown and by an execution, possession had been 
given Brown of the east half of the house and 15 acres 20 rods adjoining 
and the 13 acre pasture lot on the other side of the highway, July 12, 1830

(Ex. No. 6: 35), and on the same day, Grover Dodge, having secured judg- 
ment against Nathan and Joseph Fellows attained possession of a 2£ acre 
lot and a small piece containing 48 sq. rods near the house (Ex. No. 6: 33, 
34). Judgment was made against Joseph, Nathan and Ephraim Fellows 
and 8| acres were set off to him, Sept. 28, 1830 (Exec. No. 6: 33, 34). Mary 
Fellows, the widow of John Fellows, gained judgment against Joseph and 
\Z\ acres were set off to her and 9 acres were set off to Judith Manning, 
both lots abutting on the river, July 12, 1830 (Ex. No. 6: 36, 37). The 
west half of the house and the lots he had bought from Nathan were 
all that was left to Joseph. Ammi Brown sold his holdings, the east half 
of the dwelling and lands to Daniel Appleton Jr. of Beverly, Jan. 16, 1832 
(263:63). He married Mehitable K. Cleaves of Beverly, April 10, 1832 
and they made their home on the newly bought farm. Mr. Appleton cut 
the old dwelling in halves, moved his part, which was the main dwelling, a 
few rods away and enlarged and remodelled it. Parker Dodge et al. 
heirs of Grover Dodge sold his lots to Appleton, Feb. 21, 1837 (333: 265). 
He. bought the 10 acre lot opposite of Ebenezer Cogswell, who had pur- 
chased it from Nathan Fellows Jr. in 1827, Feb. 2, 1844 (342: 152). 

The widow, Mary Fellows, devised her land to her nephews, 
Levi and George Willett. To Levi, she gave a 10 acre lot, and 
4 acres to George. Levi sold to Alonzo B. Fellows, June 3, 1852 (461: 
197) and when Mr. Fellows sold his farm to James H. Proctor, he sold this 
lot as well, Jan. 30, 1899 (1568: 464). George Willett sold his 4 acres to 
Rev. Daniel Fitz, Pastor of the South Church, April 24, 1849. Dr. Fitz 
sold this to John Brown, also a piece of pasture land adjoining, called Fel- 
lows Hill, containing 6 acres, "being the same which Lucy Brown, admin- 
istratrix of James Brown conveyed to me, May 16, 1849, excepting and 
reserving \ an acre thereof, with a right of way which I have sold to the 
Town of Ipswich," June 5, 1851 (1568: 467). John H. Brown et al. heirs 
of John Brown sold this to Mr. Proctor, Jan. 28, 1899 (1568: 469). The 
Town established a gravel pit, which was used for many years. It was 
sold by the Town to Mr. Proctor, May 27, 1901 (1664: 367). 

Sarah J. Fellows, Henry H. Wall and Frances, Elijah Emerson and 
Mary, of Cambridge, sold their interest in a 11 acre lot, between John H. 
Brown's "old field," and the river, part of the estate of their father, Joseph, 
conveyed to him by John, Dec. 31, 1823 (234: 106) to their brother Alonzo 
B. Fellows, Jan. 30, 1899 (1568: 462) who sold to James H. Proctor, the 
same day, Jan. 30, 1899 (1568: 464). Daniel W. Appleton inherited his 
father's estate and sold the 13 acre pasture, bought by his father of Ammi 
Brown to Mr. Proctor, Jan. 30, 1899 (1568: 466). On this lot, Mr. Proctor 
built his stately mansion, and the bare pasture has been transformed into 
beautiful lawns and gardens. A little more than 75 acres were secured by 
Mr. Proctor in these purchases. A part of this was included in the original 
John Andrews farm, sold to William Fellows, part in the Saltonstall 40 
acre pasture and part, perhaps, in the John Lowe land. Mr. Proctor also 
purchased 34 acres on the other side of Mile River, in the Town of 
Hamilton. 



CANDLEWOOD. 49 

Ephraim Fellows, 5 son of Benjaimn, 4 as was stated. 1 received his 
father's homestead at his death and half the farm, in 1796. He bought of 
Hannah Swasey, the 9 acre birch pasture, originally owned by the inn- 
keeper, Increase How, and inherited by his descendants, on the north side 
of Lakeman's Lane, March 31, 1797 (173: 88). He divided his estate by 
will between his widow Eunice and his children. 

To his widow he gave the northeast end of the dwelling and land ad- 
joining, and 2\ acres in the birch lot, also the orchard west of the house, 
and wood land in Low's Island. 
To Eunice, land in Low's Island. 
To Oliver, the east field, 1\ acres. 
To Lucy Brown, the low ground, \2\ acres. 

To Ephraim, the cow pasture, 5| acres, adjoining the Manning farm. 
To George, 9 acres in the birch pasture. 
To Elizabeth, the southwest half of the dwelling and land. 
To Susanna Dennis, the river meadow at Low's Island. 

will proved, April 3, 1810 (Pro. Rec, 379: 174) 
division filed April 2, 1825 (Pro. Rec. 404: 593). 
Elizabeth Fellows, 8 married John P.Lakeman. Execution was granted 
Oliver Underhill and possession was given him of all that she inherited 
from her father, Feb. 14, 1863 (Exec. No. 12: 15) and Aug. 13, 1863 (Exec- 
No. 12:36). The widow's third was owned then by Aaron F.Brown, who sold 
her portion and also the east field, assigned to Oliver, to Oliver Appleton, 
April 17, 1849 (410: 253). Appleton apparently sold the half house to 
Mr. Underhill. Catherine P. Underhill sold the house and land about it 
to Aaron Lord, June 15, 1878 (1000: 102). He sold to Jacob Scanks, June 
17, 1878 (1000: 103), who sold to Daniel W. Appleton, Feb. 2, 1882 (1075: 
216). Mr. Appleton sold the buildings and 5 acres of land to William 
J. Cameron, Oct. 28, 1885 (1161: 236). It was built, as has been said 2 , by 
Benjamin Fellows, about 1740. The old chimney has been torn out and a 
general look of newness has dispelled all signs of its venerable age. 

Oliver Appleton sold the East Field to Willard B. Kinsman, May, 1856 
(531: 83) and his heirs sold to William J. Cameron. The orchard 
lot, sold by Aaron F. Brown to Oliver Appleton, was sold by him 
to Alonzo B. Fellows, May 7, 1856 (531: 82). He sold to Silas 
Henry Goodwin, Nov. 15, 1870 (811:52) who built the house on the lot # 
He sold the house and lot to his brother-in-law, William J. Cameron. 

George Fellows, 6 sold his part of the birch pasture to William Man- 
ning, Jan. 8, 1833, (270: 38) and the widow's 2 acres were secured at a later 
date. Manning owned the adjoining lot, the Smith lot, and his heirs sold 
his whole estate to George Fellows, Sept. 7, 1860 (612: 246). It is now 
included in the estate of Charles A. Campbell. 3 

The low ground, bequeathed to Lucy Brown, was sold by her admin- 
istrator to Daniel Appleton, April 30, 1852 (506: 298), who also bought a

small half acre lot at the bridge of Aaron F. Brown, Aug. 10, 1853 (506: 
299). Ephraim, 6 sold the cow-pasture to Oliver Underhill, Dec. 13, 1826 
(244: 1) who sold to John Manning, April 2, 1827 (350: 108). It is still 
included in the Ebenezer Fall farm. 

Lucy Brown, the administratrix of James Brown, sold the 7 acres in 
Low's Island, given to Eunice Fellows, to Rev. Daniel Fitz, March 28, 1849 
(492: 133) and Susanna Dennis sold her 2 acres to the same, March 11, 1854 
(492: 134). His son, Daniel F. Fitz, sold both lots, deeded to him, July 
5, 1861, to Daniel W. Appleton, Aug. 26, 1870 (807: 32). 

This long series of wills, inventories and conveyances reveals many 
interesting secrets of the life of this little community. It was wonderfully 
self-sufficient. These farmers cultivated only a few acres. Their farm 
stock was limited and their "utensils of husbandry," as they are styled in 
one ancient inventory, were few and simple. Despite the fact that all the 
farm labor was done by hand, they had opportunity and necessity, no doubt* 
to turn to other employments, to complete the round of their activities. 
So we find few men, who are styled yeomen or farmers and many who tilled 
their lands, but added to their yeomanry the trades of the house carpenter, 
glazier, brickmaker and blacksmith, of the cordwainer, weaver and tailor, 
and by these trades they were known. 

Hence the community had little need of help from without. When 
a new house was required, the noble oaks and pines were felled on their 
own wood lots, the great beams were fashioned with the axe, and the neigh- 
boring sawmill of Major Samuel Appleton on Mile River, converted the 
great logs into boards and smaller timber, shingles and clapboards. The 
brickmaker supplied the bricks, the blacksmith, nails, hinges and latches, 
and the carpenter and glazier did the rest. 

The individual household was likewise an economic unit. Its food 
supplies were almost entirely derived from the Indian corn and rye, the 
beef, pork and poultry, the milk and eggs, butter and cheese, raised on the 
farm, while from their barley, malted at the Rogers malt house, they made 
their home brewed beer. Every family had its flock of sheep and a field 
was always sown with flax. Then the tireless and ingenious women of the 
household with deft touch spun and wove and bleached, provided table 
and bed linen and made the beautiful bed quilts, which are prized still for 
their splendid handiwork, cut and fashioned garments, knit stockings and 
mittens. Happily William Brown, the professional weaver, could help in the 
production of the heavier fabrics and the neighborhood tailor could fashion 
the more elaborate overcoats and fine dress coats, which the wealthier 
men needed. The cordwainers made the shoes. The wood lots at Chebacco 
and the great peat meadow, close at hand, provided fuel for the huge fire- 
places. Home-made candles and smoky "betty lamps," or smokier pitch 
pine strips gave a feeble light. 

All of these old farm houses were comfortably furnished and some in- 
ventories give evidence of luxury. There were neighborhood aristocrats > 
James Burnham, with his two negro slaves, his houses and lands; James 
Brown, the town shopkeeper who also had his Candlewood farm and his 



CANDLEWOOD. 51 

black slaves, Kant and Bett ; and the cordwainer, John Brown, whose Luie 
and Phillis made the housework lighter. Clad in his velvet coat and short 
clothes, with wig and silver buckles and buttons, the Candlewood gentle- 
man made a brave appearance. Some traces of the oldest houses remain 
in the cellars of two of the present dwellings at least, where the ancient oak 
summers still support the hearths of the fire places. The bevelled edges 
indicate well finished dwellings, resembling the old Whipple house, now 
owned by the Historical Society 

In the great social necessities of life the old nieghborhood proved 
adequate to its own needs as well. A study of the genealogies appended 
makes it plain that in the large proportion of marriages, both bride and 
groom were from this group of houses. Playmates and schoolmates, these 
Browns and Fellowses and Kinsmans and the Appletons, a little farther 
removed, finally became partners for life. Frequently they spent their 
lives in the same dwelling in which they were born, and never went far 
enough afield to lose sight of the smoke from the chimnies or the smell of 
the peat reak of the old neighborhood. This passion for home has de- 
scended to the present generation and in thirteen of the comfortable dwell- 
ings of today, either husband or wife was born and bred on Candlewood 
soil. 

Children came into these old homes in glad profusion, and it rarely 
happened that the first born son did not bear his father's name. Some 
names were loved so well that they passed from generation to generation, 
and in one case, John Brown of the Hamlet in Revolutionary times was 
enrolled as John Brown 7th. In the very beginning of our town, there 
were three John Browns, distinguished as Senior, the farmer and the glazier, 
and in a land lawsuit, the John Brown in possession based his defence in 
part, upon the fact that the writ did not specify which John Brown he was, 
as there were several of the name in the town. 

Numerous as their children were, the parents were never at a loss for 
names. Praise God, Hate Evil and other Puritan names of that ilk, were 
never in vogue with them. The Bible furnished an inexhaustible series 
of noble and significant names and beginning with Adam and righteous 
Abel, the names of the patriarchs and prophets, the soldiers and sages of 
the Hebrew Word, the evangelists and apostles of later times, and of the 
holy women of Bible story, were given to their offspring. 

The famiHes themselves were patriarchal. Ten and twelve children 
were not unusual and sometimes the numbers swelled to heroic proportions. 
Nathan Fellows by his first marriage had twelve children, none of whom 
survived the age of seven. Marrying again and choosing apparently a 
woman of greater physical power, he had the pleasure of seeing thirteen 
children grow to manhood and womanhood. Stephen Kinsman had an 
even dozen, Moses had ten, and William Kinsman counted thirteen chil- 
dren around his daily board. ' One daughter, married in the best room 
and removed to another neighborhood, but returned fifty years later, with 
sons and daughters to celebrate her golden wedding in the old parlor. Wil- 
liam and Elizabeth Brown rejoiced in thirteen children, Lieut. Nehemiah 



52 CANDLE WOOD. 

had eleven, John and Hannah Brown gathered thirteen about the great 
fire places in the farm house on Fellows Lane. Stephen Brown had eleven 
and James Brown's house was made merry and noisy by twelve. No won- 
der Sabbath day congregations were large in those good old days, when 
church going was the rule and whole families were found in the family pew, 
though the meeting house was cold and cheerless. The Candlewood school, 
now abandoned under modern methods of centralization, enrolled sixty 
pupils in the childhood of some who are still living. 

The ability to bear the burden which was put upon the mothers of 
these old families, passes our comprehension. The mere clothing of her 
household, from husband to the babe, never absent from the cradle, when 
few fabrics were bought and everything was made by hand, the providing 
of the daily food with the primitive conveniences of the fire place, the butter 
and cheese making, the manufacture of the household linen, the endless 
anxieties, were too much for flesh and blood, as we think it. Sometimes 
dreadful epidemics caused terror in every home. In the family of Mark 
and Hepzibah Howe, in another parish of the town, a throat distemper, 
as it was called, caused the death of their daughter, Lucy, on Nov. 5, 1736, 
Mary followed on Nov. 15th, Hannah and Aaron on Nov. 18th, Abijah on 
the 21st, Mark on the 24th, Moses on the 28th, and Love on the 28th, eight 
deaths in twenty-three days. The great white plague was always claiming 
its victims. Scarlet fever was regarded as unavoidable and of no great sig- 
nificance. A lady, who died some fourteen years ago, taught school in her 
early womanhood and she went to her work as usual, after watching all 
night with a child suffering with this fever. 

The house mother's care for her own was always increased by her readi- 
ness to minister to her neighbor's family in every critical hour. All modern 
rules for mothers and babes were habitually violated. Modern remedies 
and modern nursing were alike unknown. Yet they lived and reached a 
ripe old age. William Kinsman died in his old homestead in 1866 aged 
ninety, his father and mother both had reached the age of ninety-one, his 
grand-father had lived to be ninety-three and his sister was ninety-six when 
she died. Capt. Elisha Brown died in 1808 leaving his widow with six chil- 
dren under age, including a babe of ten months. That marvellous woman 
brought up her family and lived fifty-seven years a widow, dying in 1865 
at the great age of one hundred and one years and two months. 

Under such circumstances, it might be imagined that the lot of the 
children was as hard as that of their mothers, and that they must have 
suffered much from neglect. It is a fact that they were not dressed accord- 
ing to Paris fashions. They had less school privilege than the law demands 
for children today. But those children were taught diligently in the Bible 
and the catechism and the great hymns of the church. They learned to 
read and write, and sew and knit. The crowning glory of the girl's educa- 
tion was the sampler, cleverly wrought on the homespun canvass. The 
alphabet, in capitals and small letters, was generally followed by some gene- 
alogical record or by a mournful verse. One sampler, preserved in the 
collection of the Historical Society, bears the lugubrious sentiment: 



CANDLEWOOD. 53 

"When I am dead and in my grave 
And all my bones are rotten, 
When this you see remember me 
That I mayn't be forgotten." 

Happily the little maid who wrought that sampler was accustomed 
to these painful moralizings and all her playmates shared her dismal ex- 
perience. Nevertheless her education prepared her well on the whole for 
her prospective cares and responsibilities. No doubt the joys of Thanks- 
giving, the excitements of the frequent weddings and the common home 
pleasures offset the dullness and straitness of child life in very satisfactory 
fashion. 

The ancient neighborhood had its days of darkness and fear. John 
Brown Senior's inventory in 1677 contains the item, 

"axes, sithes, sawes and other utensells of husbandry with some 
Armor £3-12s. -0." 

The dread of Indian assault was always with them and when night 
settled down upon those scattered farm houses and the wolves howled in 
the forests, many a brave heart trembled at some unusual sound. When 
King Philip's war at last broke out, Ephraim Fellows was a trooper with 
Captain Paige and then with our Ipswich soldier, Captain John Whipple; 
Isaac Fellows was in Captain Willard's Co. Joseph Fellows and John 
Brown were also enrolled. James Burnham was a trooper in Major Apple- 
ton's Co. in the Narragansett campaign. Quarter master Robert Kins- 
man was a sufferer in the Gov. Andros episode and John Ross went to 
Quebec with Phipps. The witchcraft persecution carried consternation 
to every household and intense interest and sympathy were roused by the 
arrest of their old neighbors, John Proctor and his wife, in the Chebacco 
parish and the petition of Rev. John Wise and thirty-one men of his parish, 
all of whom were friends of the men of Candlewood, for their release. When 
the news of the march of the British regulars on April 19th arrived, many 
of the young men hurried to Lexington, in Capt. Robert Perkins's com- 
pany of horse, or the several companies of minute men. The three or four 
days of their absence were a trying time to the neighborhood. Some of 
them served in the war and William Kinsman was in the battle of Bunker 
Hill. The allurements of the gold fever in '49 attracted a number of 
the young men to California. They never returned and no one knew the 
story of their lives. 

While the love of home has been the conspicuous trait of the neigh- 
borhood life, in all these generations, there have been many migrations 
elsewhere. Capt. Jonathan Fellows long ago removed to Gloucester, and 
from him has descended a conspicuous line of merchants and wealthy and 
prominent citizens in Boston and New York. Fellows Athenaeum in Rox- 
bury, now used by the Boston Public Library, was built and endowed by 
Caleb Fellows of this family line. From John Choate has sprung that 
illustrious Rufus Choate, whose fame is as wide as the world, and Joseph 



54 CANDLEWOOD. 

H. Choate, the famous lawyer and Ambassador to England. Judge Ed- 
ward Brown of the Appellate Court of Illinois and Bishop Kinsman of 
Delaware rejoice in their Candlewood forbears. Multitudes of worthy and 
lovable men and women have gone far and wide, and through these sons 
and daughters, the fathers and the mothers who lived their simple and 
hard lives so well, are handing on their stalwart virtues, their love of toil, 
their broad and sympathetic good neighborliness to the generations that 
are to come.

EDITORIAL NOTE.— In the year 1876, the Kinsman Family Record 
was published, entitled "Genealogical Record of the descendants of 
Robert Kinsman of Ipswich, Mass., From 1634 to 1875. Compiled for 
Frederick Kinsman by Lucy W. Stickney.' ' I have copied all the 
Ipswich material and made careful comparison of this work with the 
original record. A few mistakes have been noted and corrected. The 
Ipswich families have been completed to the present year, and a care- 
ful study of locations has been made. I have made no attempt at 
tracing the lines of those who have emigrated from Ipswich, but have 
made constant reference to the printed Genealogy in the foot-notes for 
this portion of the work. I am greatly indebted to this admirable fam- 
ily history for this very material assistance. -*— 7\ F. W. 



GENEALOGICAL RECORD OF THE DESCENDANTS 

OF 

ROBERT KINSMAN OF IPSWICH, MASS. 

1. Robert Kinsman, 1 the immigrant, a glazier by trade, received a 
grant of an acre of land on the south side of the way now known as Green 
St., near the corner of County St. He probably built his house here in the 
year 1635, though the record of the grant was not made until 1637. 
He died Jan. 28, 1664 and his will proved Mar. 28, 1665 (Pro. Rec. 
1:213) gave his dwelling to Tabitha, his only unmarried daughter. His 
wife had probably died before this date as no mention of her is made in 
the will. His children were : 

2 Robert, 2 born 1629. See No. 2. 

3 Mary, 2 married 1st, Daniel Ringe; 2nd, Usual or Uzall Wardell. 

4 Sarah, 2 married Samuel Younglove, Aug. 1, 1660. 

5 Hannah, 2 married William Danford, Mar. 20, 1670; died Oct. 

18, 1678. 

6 Martha, 2 married Jacob Foster, Jan. 12, 1658. 
! 7 Tabitha. 2 

The new homes of the daughters were near the homestead. Mary, the 
eldest, lived on Turkey Shore Road, on the lot now owned by Mr. Arthur 
W. Dow. Sarah's husband, Thomas Younglove Jr., bought the houselot 
of Thomas Wells on County St., within the houselot of Mrs. John Heard 
in the rear of the South Church, Mar. 26, 1659, a few months before their 
marriage, and retained the ownership until 1696. Hannah's husband, 
William Danford, was not a resident of Ipswich apparently. Jacob Foster, 
who married Martha, lived within a few rods of the Kinsman houselot, at 
the time of his marriage and their wedded life was spent in the immediate 
neighborhood. Robert alone made a little farther remove. 

2. Robert Kinsman, 2 born in 1629, followed his father's trade. He 
married Mary Boreman, daughter of Thomas, whose dwelling was in East 
St. As he purchased his Candlewood farm in 1652, his marriage occurred 
probably about that time. The Quartermaster died on February 19, 1712 
and was buried in the old High Street Burying Ground, where his grave- 
stone still stands. Their children were: 

8 Mary, 3 born Dec. 21, 1657. 

9 Sarah, 3 born March 19, 1659; married Jacob Perkins. 

10 Thomas, 3 born April 15, 1662. See No. 10. 

11 Joanna, 3 born April 25, 1665; married Nathaniel Rust Jr., Feb. 

22, 16S4.

10. Thomas Kinsman, 3 born in 1652, married Elizabeth Burnham, 
July 12, 1687, and lived on the farm now owned and occupied by Mr. 
Fred. G. Cross, less than a mile from his birthplace. He died July 15, 
1696, and his widow married Isaac Ringe of Ipswich (pub. July 27, 1700). 
Their children were: 

17 Stephen, 4 born about 1688. See No. 17. 

18 Elizabeth, 4 born about 1690; married Jacob Perkins, son of Jacob 

and Sarah (Kinsman) Perkins (pub. Mar. 6, 1713). 

19 Thomas, 4 born April 3, 1693. 

20 Mary, 4 born Oct. 14, 1695; married Thomas Waite Jr. (pub. Dec. 

14, 1717). 

Thomas forsook the land for the sea. He was styled "mariner" in his 
deed of conveyance of his share in the homestead to his brother in 1714. 
His heirs quitclaimed to Stephen, Dec. 19, 1729 (56: 277). 

14. Joseph Kinsman 3 was born Dec. 20, 1673 in the Candlewood 
home. He married first Susanna Dutch of Ipswich. Her gravestone in 
the old High St. Ground bears the inscription. "Here lyes Buried the Body 
of Mrs. Susanna Kinsman, wife to Lieut. Joseph Kinsman, who departed 
this life, Nov 1 9th Ann Dom? 1734." He married second, Sarah Peabody 1 
of Boxford, April 27, 1736. It has been noted already 2 that his father 
conveyed his dwelling to him with the adjacent land, March 21, 1698, 
about the time of his first marriage. His children, all by the first mar- 
riage, were. 

21 Susanna, 4 born Feb. 16, 1700; married 1st, Increase How (pub. 

Aug. 10, 1723); married 2d, John Smith, Jan. 28, 1762.

corner lot, now owned and occupied by Dr. William E. Tucker, "with a 
good mansion house," of Joseph Whipple, Dec. 28, 1724. He became an 
inn-keeper and his hostelry enjoyed wide renown. By the will of her hus- 
band, the wife was allowed the use of the east half of the inn in 1754, but 
she married Capt. John Smith, Jan. 28, 1762. He bought the Burley 
mansion on Green St. in 1760 and there his wife, of long experience in the 
fine art of tavern-keeping, resumed her vocation. This old inn still 
stands, with promise of many years of usefulness. 

The twin daughters, Eunice and Sarah, married brothers, the sons of 
Nathaniel Wells, a farmer in the Argilla neighborhood. Moses Wells and 
Eunice lived for many years in the old house which was known in its last 
days as the Molly Martin house on East St. Capt. Nathaniel Wells and 
Sarah spent their lives on the Argilla farm of his ancestors, where thirteen 
children were born to them. Elizabeth, Hannah and Martha, married 
Ipswich men and became the mothers of large families. Of the sons, 
Joseph died in early manhood, Nathaniel removed to Gloucester, where 
all his children were born. Benjamin Kinsman inherited half the parental 
homestead, but sold to his brother, Pelatiah, and bought the Jonathan 
Fellows farm, now owned by Benjamin R. Horton, on the Candlewood 
road, a half mile from his birthplace, in 1742, two years after his marriage, 
and made his home there until 1747 when he sold to Capt. John Boardman. 
In 1760 he removed to Cornwallis, Nova Scotia. John and Pelatiah were 
content to dwell in their ancestral town. 2 

15 Robert Kinsman, 3 born May 21, 1677, married Lydia More or 
Moore of Boston, April 3, 1700 and for a second wife, Rebecca Burley, 
daughter of Cornet Andrew Burley, June 28, 1705. His deed of sale to his 
brother Joseph (40: 17) Feb. 18, 1720-21, shows that he made his home 
in the Fellows homestead on the corner of Candlewood Road and Fellows 
Road. A deed dated Oct, 28, 1721 (73: 25) gives his residence as Norwich, 
Conn. He died there June 7, 1761, his widow Rebecca, surviving until 
Nov. 11, 1775. 3 The children of Robert and Rebecca, all born in Ipswich, 
were: 

32 Rebecca, 4 born Aug. 15, 1706; died Dec. 17, 1719. Gravestone

THE DESCENDANTS OF 

WILLIAM FELLOWS 

OF IPSWICH, MASS. 



EDITORIAL NOTE. — Great assistance in the investigation of this line 
has been rendered by Miss Harriet Davis Fellows~of Cornwall-on- Hudson, 
who furnished the data regarding the descendants of Capt. Jonathan 
Fellows of Gloucester. Mr. Horatio Davis of Boston has also con- 
tributed family notes. Mr. Joseph Davis has made a careful study of 
the Fellows line, from which he is descended, and is confident that the 
children of Cornelius Fellows and Sarah Williams, No. 53, were the first 
to write the name Fellowes. T. F. W. 



GENEALOGICAL RECORD OF THE DESCENDANTS 

OF 

WILLIAM FELLOWS OF IPSWICH, MASS. 

1. William Fellows is known to us, first, as one of the Town cow- 
herds. In the earliest contract with these officials mentioned in our Town 
Records, under the date of Sept., 1639, agreement was made with William 
Fellows to keep the herd of cows on the south side the river, from the 20th 
of April to the 20th of November. He was bound by his contract, "to 
drive them out to feed before the sunne be half an hour high and not to 
bring them home before half an hour before sunset." He was also re- 
quired to drive the cattle, "coming over the River back over the River at 
night," and to take charge of them "as soon as they are put over the River 
in the morning." He was liable for any harm coming to the herd and was 
to receive 12 pence for each cow before he took them, a shilling and six 
pence fourteen day saf ter mid-summer and the rest at the end of the term s 
in corn or money, a total of £15. In 1640, he was associated with Mark 
Quilter and Symon Tompson as the cowkeepers on the north side of the 
river. 

Twenty years later, he bought the John Andrews farm 1 and took up his 
residence in Candlewood. In 1664, when Richard Saltonstall conveyed 
the title in several lots to his son, Nathaniel of Haverhill, on the occasion of 
his marriage with Elizabeth, daughter of Rev. John Ward, he included 
in his gift a farm of 150 acres at "Chebacco," "now in the occupation of 
William and Isaac Fellows." This farm is now owned by the heirs of Asa 
P. Stone in Argilla. William Fellows was a "tenant to Richard Salton- 
stall," Sept., 1659. Mr. Fellows and his son were also lease holders of 15 
acres of meadow near the land of Dep. Gov. Symonds. In 1668, with John 
Proctor Sen., he bought a four rod lot with a house an the west corner of 
Green St. and the Meeting House Green. The double ownership continued 
during his life but on Dec. 21, 1676 his executors bought the Proctor interest 
of Proctor's heirs. 

His widow survived him and at his death five children were living: 

2 Isaac, 2 born about 1037. See No. 2. 

3 Ephraim. 2 See No. 3. 

4 Samuel. 2 See No. 4.

A GENEALOGY 

OF THE DESCENDANTS OF 

JOHN BROWN 

— OF — 

IPWSICH, MASS, 



EDITORIAL NOTE. 

This is not a complete genealogy. The tracing of all 
lines of descent in every generation would require an amount 
of research, and an expenditure of time and money, which 
makes it a task "practically impossible for me and wholly be- 
yond the scope of my original plan. My primary purpose has 
been j to trace the Ipswich descendants and this plan has 
been adhered to in the main down to the year 1800. In 
constructing this portion of the work, I have made an inde- 
pendent personal study of all the Ipswich vital records. But 
Mr. Sidney Perley has already covered this ground in his 
monograph published in The Essex Antiquarian, vol. xii, No. 
4. While I am not in complete agreement with his work, 
-I have been glad to make frequent reference to it for 
families, which have migrated from Ipswich. His reputation 
for pains taking and accurate work is well known, and I have 
been glad to avail myself of his investigations, particularly 
in the Hamilton families of this line. 

From the year 1800 or thereabout I have endeavored to 
make a fairly complete study of the male line of descent, 
following each family as far as possible. I have made spe- 
cial effort to connect the Ipswich families with their locations,

GENEALOGICAL RECORD OF THE DESCENDANTS 

OF 

JOHN BROWN OF IPSWICH, MASS. 



1. John Brown Senior, the earliest settler in the Candle wood 
region bearing the family name, is first mentioned in the Town Records in 
1640. The Deposition of Thomas Burnum and Martha Thorne 1 affirmed 
that they knew that "Old Mr. John Brown five in a House in Ipswich 
Town near the house of the Rev. Mr. William Hubbard's" above seventy 
years ago, i. e., about 1650. This has been identified already with a loca- 
tion on Heartbreak Road. 2 They affirmed further that before 1660, Mr. 
Brown, "built a house att the Farme and lived in said house he built att 
the farme till after the year of our Lord, One Thousand Six Hundred and 
Sixty four." This is identified as the farm now owned by John Henry 
Brown, on Fellows's Lane. 

In the year 1670, John Brown sold John Andrews a mare. A law suit 
resulted in the following year and various depositions were made by the 
interested parties. John Brown Sen., affirmed that he sold the mare to 
John Andrews in August, 1670. 

"I, Mary Brown, was present and heard my husband, John Brown 
Sen. sell the mare." Martha Brown, daughter of John Brown Sen. made 
deposition regarding her father's sale. John Brown also gave witness. 

Court Papers, Vol. XVI. p. 142. 

John Brown Sen. died on Sept. 13, 1677. The inventory of his estate 
is of especial interest, as it reveals the furnishing of each room in the ancient 
farm house and the complete equipment of the farm. The dwelling seems 
to have contained only two rooms and the chamber above.

John Browne in Court held at Ipswich the 25 of September 1677 upon 
oath delivered this to be a true Inventory of his father's estate^to^the best 
of his knowledge. 

as attest Robert Lord, Clerk. 

Court Records, Nov. 6, 1677. 

"John Browne of Ipswich dyeing intestate power of administration 
Granted unto John Browne his eldest son by the Court, John Browne eldest 
son of John Brown deceased pduced an Inventory of the estate of his de- 
ceased father amounting to about 605 lb to w ch he made oath, granted 
administration and disposed of the estate as followeth, first y* besydes the 
501b apiece pay'dor designed to be given by the father to his two daughters, 
Jacob and Thorne, he shall within one year pay to each of them ten pound 
to his brother Nathaniell who hath already received upon his marriage

lands, cattells,goods etc we order to the said John Browne pvided the houses 
and lands stand bound to pay to his mother sixteene pounds to her content 
and a roome in the house with necessary furniture dureing her life and also

pay such Legacies as she shall bequeath at her death to her children not 
exceeding the value of 211bs." 

On April 2, 1679, John Brown petitioned to be relieved from these 
terms of settlement. His brother Nathaniel, aged about 25 years testified, 
"not long before my father John Brown's death he spoke of the woman which 
is now my brother John's wife. My father said he was not willing he should 
marry with her. He said he would give to his son John all his living as he 
had already given to Sarah Martha and myself." 

Court Papers, Vol. XXXI, pp. 17,18,19. 

"Upon the considderation of the petition of the sd. John Browne and 
the testimony of Andrew Burdley, Nathaniel Browne and Mary Lambert 
the Court sees cause to take him off from paying the sd. sisters 101b apiece 
and the 211b to his mother for her disposal at her death." 

Court Record, April 1, 1679. 

These documents show that the wife's name was Mary and that the 
children were: 

2 John, 2 born about 1639. See No. 2. 

3 Martha, 2 married Barnard Thorne between 1670 and 1679. 

4 Sarah, 2 married Thomas Jacobs, Dec. 21, 1671 (Parish Record). 

5 Nathaniel, 2 born about 1652. See No. 5. 

2. John Brown, 2 was born about 1639. Another John Brown 
called "the glazier" and "the drummer," of about the same age, a resident 
in Ipswich, has been confused with the John Brown, son of John, whom 
we are now considering. It is necessary to establish the identity of each 
of them at the outset. 

The Town Records contain the birth entries: 

Elizabeth, daughter of John, born April 15, 1664. 

John, son of John, born Sept. 29, 1666. 

Jonathan, son of John, born Nov. 4, 1668. 

Sarah, daughter of John born Dec. 2, 1670. 

Hannah, daughter of John, the glazier, born Nov. 13, 1676. 

John Brown, the glazier, had wife Mary, in 1668. On April 22, 1668, 
John Brown, glazier, his wife, Mary, releasing right of dower, sold two divi- 
sional lots in Plum Island to Francis Wainwright (23:70). On March 20, 
1674-5, he sold his house on High St., in Ipswich, to Thomas Lull and 
Robert Paine, his wife, Mary, signing release (Ips. Deeds, 3: 335). 

John, the glazier, was a notorious drunkard. The Town authorities 
ordered him not to frequent any of the ordinaries "as he neglects his voca- 
tions and spends much time and expense " (1672) and the Ipswich Court 
ordered, "No person whatsoever shall sell or give unto John Brown the 
glazier, any strong drink etc." This notice was to be posted at the meeting 
house and ordinaries, 1679. (Court Papers, Vol. XXXI: 19.) The Grand 
Jury presentment calls him John Brown, the drummer (XXXI : 18.) At 
the same Court, John Brown, son of John, was released from paying extra 



OF JOHN BROWN 93 

money to his sisters and mother. The term, glazier, is used to distinguish 
the tippler from the farmer. 

A neighborhood scandal on High Street arose in 1682. John Brown, 
aged 44, and Mary his wife, testified ; also Elizabeth Brown and Mary Brown 
aged 19. (Court Papers, Vol. XXXVII: 89.) The Grand Jury made pre- 
sentment against Mary Brown and Elizabeth, the glazier's daughters, for 
arranging their hair too showily and wearing silk scarfs, April 14, 1682. 
(Court Papers, Vol. XXXVII: 116.) 

In 1690, he was before the Court again for his evil habits and on March 
29, 1692, John Brown, the glazier, was presented for being a common drunk- 
ard, and for throwing a fire brand at his wife, which struck her on the thigh. 
(Court Papers, Vol. LEE: 112.) 

These citations establish the fact that Elizabeth born 1664, the first 
of the children named 1 was the daughter of John, the glazier and Mary, that 
Hannah, born in 1676, was the daughter of the glazier, that Mary was his 
wife in 1682 and that all the children named above were of this family. 
The deposition of Nathaniel Brown already quoted, 2 made on April 2, 1679, 
affirmed that his father made objection not long before his death to his 
brother John's marriage with the woman, "which is now my brother John's 
wife." The Town Record contains the entry: 

"John Brown. . . was married . . . 1677." (his father died Sept. 13, 1677); 
also the birth entry, "John Brown, son of John at farme, July 1678." 

On Sept. 17, 1684, John Browne, farmer, wife Hannah, sold 9 acres in 
Chebacco to Francis Wainwright, "free from all incumbrance whatsoever, 
done suffered and committed by the aforesaid John Brown's heirs or assigns 
or by John Browne his father deceased." (9: 228). The word 'farmer,' as 
we have already observed distinguished the thoroughly respectable resident 
of Candlewood from the notorious toper. Mary, the daughter of John and 
Hannah, was born July 3d, 1685. (Town Record). He bought the Bishop 
farm Jan. 1, 1684. 3 On April 18, 1707, John Brown Sen, farmer, conveyed 
to his son William, two acres of this farm, "Elizabeth my wife freely 
consenting to sd gift and freely surrenders and yields up her right of thirds 
or dower." (28: 19). 

John Brown Sen. now house carpenter, conveyed to his son William, 
one third of the Bishop farm, on which he dwelt with no mention of wife, 
May 26, 1714 (27: 28) and to his sons, John and Nathaniel, various lots, 
including the common right which belonged to the Bishop dwelling, May 
28, 1714 (27: 29). Nathaniel Brown died intestate, July 18, 1719; and on 
June 2, 1721, John Brown Jr., James Brown, William Brown, Sarah Cogs- 
well, widow, and Samuel Choate and Mary his wife, surviving heirs of Nathan- 
iel, agree in a written instrument that the estate of their brother shall 
revert to their father (313: 308). John Brown conveyed to his son, James, 
two thirds of the Bishop farm, except what he had given William out of

GENEALOGICAL RECORD OF THE DESCENDANTS 



one of their thirds, no wife mentioned, July 9, 1721 (39: 54). The Town 
Record states that Mr. John Brown died on April 9, 1727 aged 84, and 
Hannah, relict of farmer John Brown, died Nov. 19, 1727. A weather- 
worn headstone of red sandstone marks the place of their burial in the 
old High Street burying ground. Recent investigators have declared it 
illegible or have disagreed as to the inscription. I rubbed it with soft 
chalk, dusted it off carefully and the inscription was perfectly clear.

This agrees perfectly with the reading of Mr. Hammatt who copied all 
the epitaphs many years ago. There is a slight discrepancy between the 
age of Mr. Brown and the date of his wife's death as given by the Record 
and the inscription. Preference is naturally given to the inscription, as 
many inaccuracies are found in the public records. The inference must 
be that he had three wives, Hannah, Elizabeth and Hannah. Their 
children were: 

6 John, 3 born July, 1678. See No. 6. 

7 William. 3 See No. 7. 

8 James. 3 See No. 8. 

9 Mary, 3 born July 3, 1685; died Oct. 25, 1686. 

10 Sarah, 3 married John Cogswell of Chebacco (pub. Sept. 25, 1708) 

his widow in 1721. 

11 Mary, married Samuel Choate, son of the nearest neighbor (pub. 

March 31, 1716). 

12 Nathaniel, 3 died July 18, 1719 in his 29th year. (Gravestone). 

13 Elizabeth, 3 died May 7, 1716, in her 22nd year. (Gravestone) 

5. Nathaniel Brown, 2 born about 1652, was a soap boiler by trade 
and had his "sope-house" near the dam on South Main st. 1 He lived near 
by at the time, but subsequently seems to have occupied a house on what 
is now Washington St. He was a tithing man and a farmer in 1681. In 
Jan., 1706, he sold to his son, Nathaniel, a weaver, a house, barn and 16 
acres in his homestead in the Hamlet (19: 192). He married Judith 
Perkins, Dec. 16, 1673 and died in 1717. His will was proved, June 17, 
1717. His wife survived him and made her home in Wenham for many 
years. Their children were:

given him by his father, March 9, 1741 (91: 168). 

6. John Brown, 3 born July 1678, was called John Jr., in 1742 and Ser-

died on May 6, 1759 and his will (proved May 28, 1759), provided for his 
widow and children and for the children of his son John 3 , deceased. He 
had conveyed to his son, called John 3d, a house and 2 acres, Jan., 1745, 
near the house now owned by William J. Cameron, at the fork of the Essex 
road and Lakeman's Lane. 4 To his daughter, Mary (Lufkin) he gave his

FOR THE YEAR ENDING DEC. 1, 1908. 



Even-going prosperity has characterized the past year. The 
interest of the members continues, visitors to the House remain 
at a high figure, and the treasury is in a healthy condition. Our 
venerable House is gaining wider and wider fame, and the happy 
restoration we accomplished has been a guide and inspiration 
to others, in similar enterprizes. The Paul Revere house has 
been restored and opened to the public, and those who were di- 
recting the work found valuable suggestions in a visit to our 
old mansion. 

Spending a day or two in Deerfield this fall, I enjoyed the 
privilege of a thorough inspection of a delightful summer home, 
which wealthy Boston family had just completed. Instead 
of building, they had repaired and restored a venerable dwelling 
of the eighteenth century and the lady of the house told me of 
the great pleasure she had found in visiting this house, early 
this summer. No doubt she carried away some hints that 
served her well in the artistic and satisfying work she accom- 
plished. From Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard, there came 
floating to me the enthusiastic praise which a Justice of the 
Superior Court bestowed on it to an old friend. 

The financial exhibit is gratifying in every particular. The 
receipts from membership fees have been $384, $28 larger 
than last year's total and $6 larger than the year before. As 
the total membership increases steadily the revenue from this 
source should show corresponding growth. But a considerable 
fraction of the members fail to pay the fee every year, either 
from forgetfulness or because payment is inconvenient. At 
least one reminder is given in the course of the year, but a con- 
siderable number remain in arrears. If collection could be 
made from the whole membership the annual revenue would be 

(129)

materially increased. It is a gratifying fact, however, that 
every year brings us a snug sum from the payment of dues of 
previous years. 

The most elaborate and most expensive of our Publications, 
No. XV, entitled "The Old Bay Road from Saltonstall's Brook 
and Samuel Appleton's Farm with a genealogy of the Ipswich 
descendants of Samuel Appleton," has been published and dis- 
tributed. The entire expense of this publication was $420.61 but 
a generous subscription, amounting to $109, was made by the 
members of the Society, whose summer homes were photographed 
and used as illustrations. 

The total receipts from the sale of our Publications this year 
have been $24.75. The financial return from Whipple House 
has been exceptionally good. The door fees netted $145.05. 
In 1905, the receipts from this source were $134.20, in 1906, 
$156.75, in 1907, $110.95. Evidently the financial panic di- 
minished our receipts last year and the improvement in business 
has been followed by the increase noted. One pleasant house- 
party was entertained in the early summer. The Faneuil Hall 
Chapter, D.A.R. enjoyed the excellent dinner which our Social 
Committee spread, saw the Town, made an excursion down river 
and left us $41 the richer. It happened that the annual supper 
of 1907 was given after the accounts of the year were closed. It 
proved the most profitable of all and brought us $76.75. But 
the supper of 1908, made the excellent return of $64.68. The 
total receipts were $874.06. In 1905, $717.25, in 1906, $810.97, 
in 1907, $534.35 were reported. Had the supper of 1907 oc- 
curred a few days earlier, the account of 1907 would have risen 
to $611.10 and the last year's return would have been $798.06. 

The mortgage on the House has been reduced $200 and now 
amounts to $2000. It is carried easily as appears from the 
annual reduction, but its complete payment in the near future 
is greatly to be desired. While the financial condition of the 
Society is stable and prosperous, the payment of the interest 
and the gradual reduction of the principal of the mortgage 
make large demands upon the annual revenue. Were this 
removed, the Society would be able to make larger outlay for 
its publications, which are of permanent value. No more valua- 
ble and enduring work can be accomplished than this. A sink- 



REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT 131 

ing fund might also be begun, which should be used ultimately 
for a fire-proof and commodious building, which should serve 
for safe keeping of valuables and for a variety of useful purposes 

Two ways of attaining this end may be suggested to our mem- 
bers, many of whom are amply able to afford this increase of 
funds. One is by a single payment of fifty dollars which would 
enroll one in the list of Life Members and relieve from the pay- 
ment of annual dues. It was understood that a number stood 
ready to make this single payment, and the Life Membership 
was created to meet this demand. As a matter of fact, three 
only of our members have taken any action. 

The other method suggested is that of provision in wills for 
legacies. Such bequests might be made conditioned by the 
continuance of the Society, with provision for ultimate use if 
the Historical Society should cease to be. But the permanence 
of the Society is as well assured as that of any similar organiza- 
tion, and the development of a larger plant and broader work 
would enhance its certainty of future usefulness. I commend 
it to the -thoughtful consideration of the members that the His- 
torical Society, as a permanent memorial itself of the Past, and 
as the active agent in securing other memorials of the good and 
great citizens and of the admirable history of our Town, and in 
inspiring an appreciative and highminded type of citizenship, 
claims with perfect reason, a substantial endowment and gen- 
erous provision for large constructive work.

Membership in the Ipswich Historical Society involves 
the payment of an annual due of $2, or a single payment of 
$50, which secures Life Membership. Members are entitled 
to a copy of the regular publications of the Society, in pam- 
phlet form, without expense, free admission to the House 
with friends, and the privilege of voting in the business 
meetings. 

There are no restrictions as to place of residence. Any 
person, who is interested in the Society and desires to pro- 
mote its welfare, is eligible to membership. We desire to 
enlarge the non-resident membership list until it shall include 
as many as possible of those, who trace their descent to our 
Town. 

Names may be sent at any time to the President, but the 
election of members usually occurs only at the annual meet- 
ing in December.

The material for this work has been derived, by original 
research, chiefly from the Town Records, the Records of the 
old Ipswich Quarter Sessions Court and other Court Records, 
the Massachusetts Bay Records, the Massachusetts Archives, 
and contemporaneous published works, so far as possible.

It is illustrated with facsimiles of ancient documents and 
photographs. 

PART TWO 

is a study of the original land grants for house lots on all the 
ancient streets and lanes, and the successive owners to the 
present generation, with diagrams, maps, and photographs of 
many ancient dwellings. 

The dates of the erection of houses are noted in many 
instances, and all transfers are accompanied with citations of 
the Book and Leaf of the ancient Ipswich Deeds (5 volumes), 
and the Records of the Essex County Registry of Deeds and 
Registry of Probate. Some eighteen hundred citations are 
made from the original sources, and these constitute the sole 
authority for this record of locations, ownerships, and the 
probable age and identity of dwellings. 

Besides this, there are seven appendices to the volume, 
giving important historical material under the following heads: 
A summary of the names of the first settlers from 1633 to 
1649; Some Early Inventories; The Letters of Rev. Nathan- 
iel Ward; The Letters of Giles Firmin; The Letters of Sam- 
uel Symonds; The Valedictory and Monitory Writing left by 
Sarah Goodhue; The Diary of Rev. John Wise, Chaplain 
in the Expedition to Quebec. There is also a copious Index. 

The book will be of particular interest and importance to 
those who are of Ipswich ancestry, and especially, those re- 
lated to the Ipswich families of
